What are the procedures involved in casing my internal hard disk for external use? I have bought a new hard disk with one Terabytes of disk space. I want to remove my internal hard disk of five hundred Gigabyte of disk space for external use. I hereby humbly request for a professional assistance to carry out this task. Thank you.
Safety measures to assume in order to case an internal hard disk
Yes, this is a very cheap way to create and have your very own external memory storage drive, by using any old unused external hard drive. All you need is an external hard drive enclosure, into which you can fit and connect your drive and make simply awesome “plug-n-play device”!! Though this sounds like a very easy to do process, but there are some issues you really need to take care:
Buy an appropriate and suitable external hard drive case for your hard drive. These external hard drives are basically the same old standard IDE or SATA drives, but packaged in an external good looking commercial case package. These enclosures protect the hard drive and facilitate the connections needed for attaching drive interface to the I/O ports of your computer. Hence, you make a choice between cases having only USB 2.0 ports, additionally, include Fire wire 400/800 or just an external SATA ports.
Go for a really sturdy and robust case, as the most important thing is the physical security of your data.
Match the correct connection slots with the respective correct plugs which you can see on the back side of the drive.
Fasten or screw your hard drive really well inside the case, to the place, assign to mount your hard drive.
I hope now you can create your own external hard drive without any risk.
