What Is a Hard Drive Enclosure? What Does a Hard Drive Enclosure Do?
Posted on Nov 10, 2021
People are increasingly encountering large-capacity data exchange at Gigabyte given the rapid development of network and multimedia. To transfer such a large amount of data, hard disks are undoubtedly the best one to go. The hard disks are installed in the case with the operating system installed, so it is not easy to move. A hard disk enclosure physically protects a hard disk and serves as a mobile hard disk with a convenient connection method.
What is a hard drive enclosure? When you buy a new SSD (solid state drive), the original hard disk drive inside the computer is replaced and idle. Put the idle hard disk or the hard disk replaced by the old computer into the hard disk enclosure and then you will get a “new” one.
Here are some solutions to reuse a hard disk.
A. Get a comfortable "home" for the hard drives
Hard disk is "hard" but also very squeamish. Vibrations, moisture, strong magnetism, dust, and static electricity can somewhat cause hard disk damage. The hard disk box can put on the "armor" for the hard disk, which can protect and read the disk, and is more portable.
The ORICO transparent USB3.0 2.5-inch hard drive enclosure is perfect for a 2.5-inch solid-state drive and hard disk drive, with 4TB capacity and USB3.0 Micro B as output. It easily hooks up your old 2.5inch SATA I/II/III hard drive to transfer files from one PC to another PC, laptop, PS4 or as a USB external hard drive. A 50cm USB-A cable is included for flexible connection and portability.

Ultra-Fast USB 3.0 to SATA III interface has a maximum data transfer rate of 5Gbps, UASP protocol increases speed by 20% compared to traditional USB 3.0 specification.
B. Easy mutual copy between dual hard drives
Multi-disk hard disk holders/boxes can use multiple hard disks at a time, make full use of idle hard disks, and expand more capacity for the computer.

C. Big data security backup, high-speed management with array function
Afraid that the speed of the old hard drive can't keep up? Worried about losing valuable data due to hard drive damage? Array function is a kind of combination of multiple independent hard disks in different ways to form a hard disk group, thereby providing higher storage performance and safe backup technology than a single hard disk.
