Drive me­chan­ics

Sea­gate’s drive cir­cuitry is found in this plug-in at­tach­ment; other drives in­te­grate it into the chas­sis.

Drive cas­ing

Screws are rarely used with ex­ter­nal hard drives. In­stead, they use a se­ries of tabs you need to prise open.

Hard disk

The in­ter­nal disk is like any other, but you’ll need to re­move any at­tached ex­tras.

Re­place­ment caddy

Thank­fully, in­stalling or re­mov­ing a disk from re­place­ment drive en­clo­sures is a much sim­pler process.
