Hard Drive Enclosures

The purpose of a hard drive enclosure is to give an internal hard drive a housing so that it can be used as an external hard drive. This allows the user to give portability to an internal hard drive, saving time on having to move necessary files to a different drive that might be more portable. Furthermore, hard drive enclosures make it easy to create external hard drive backups of data on the user’s primary hard drive.

Advantages of Hard Drive Enclosures

Hard drive enclosures offer several benefits in a number of different use cases. Primarily, they offer a quick and easy way to add storage to any system, whether it is a desktop, laptop and any sealed embedded system that can recognize the hard drive in the enclosure. Hard drive enclosures are also a convenient way to add storage to a PC that has run out of drive bays. Users can also transfer files between non-networked computers very quickly with a hard drive enclosure simply by taking out the internal hard drive in one system, placing it in the enclosure, and then attaching it to the new system. Finally, a hard drive enclosure allows users to keep important data safe in a detachable location when a virus or other catastrophe strikes the main system.

Top hard drive enclosure manufacturers from around the world have partnered with Newegg, allowing Newegg to offer its customers the widest selection of hard drive enclosures and accessories. Brands include: Orico, Rosewill, STARTECH, ICY DOCK, Vantec, Thermaltake and more! Whether you need to accommodate a 2.5” SSD or a 3.5” mechanical hard drive, Newegg has the enclosure you’re looking for.

Hard drive enclosures are almost completely self-contained units, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t invest in a few extra parts.

Cables: Hard drive enclosures typically connect to a system via USB, whether that system is a desktop PC or a laptop. Most enclosures will come with a connector cable, but in case it doesn’t, you will need to provide one. Make sure you get the proper cable that supports the desired transfer speed. There is a difference between USB 2.0 and 3.0.

Docking Station: Sometimes hard drive enclosures can be cumbersome when you are working with several drives. You can save yourself the hassle of swapping hard drives in and out of a hard drive enclosure by purchasing a docking station. If all you need is to transfer files without having to transfer the drive itself, then a docking station is the fastest solution. These units allow you to swap drives in and out with the press of a button.

When choosing your hard drive enclosure there are a few important factors to consider. The most important one is to ensure that the enclosure can accommodate your hard drive. Just because a hard drive enclosure accommodates a full-size mechanical hard drive does not necessarily mean it will work with a laptop hard drive. Also make sure that the enclosure has the proper connections to interface with your hard drive. Most internal hard drives will use either IDE or SATA.

You will also want to consider how permanent of a solution the hard drive enclosure will be. If you intend to swap drives in and out a lot, then you should consider getting a docking bay instead. If the drive will remain in the enclosure for an extended period, then consider a multi-drive hard drive enclosure so that you can expand your storage later.

Finally, decide if you will need active or passive cooling for your hard drive enclosure. If your enclosure will be located in a room with poor airflow, then a hard drive enclosure with a built-in fan may be necessary. You should also consider this if you plan on reading and writing to these drives constantly. Excessive heat can degrade performance and also damage your data.

What are LaCie Hard Drives?

LaCie is a storage solution manufacturer. Among many of its product offerings are portable storage devices like hard drives and USB keys. While they do not offer standalone hard drive enclosures, LaCie does provide hard drives that are permanently enclosed in a number of housings; some of them are very rugged and durable. Check out Newegg’s selection of LaCie products here.

What is a SATA Hard Drive?

Any hard drive that uses a SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) is a SATA hard drive. SATA replaced the older interface, IDE, in 2009, but some IDE hard drives still exist. SATA offers better performance than IDE and also uses special SATA cables that take less space inside PCs. SATA technology can also be found in some external hard drives and accessories in the form of eSATA, which connects to PCs and laptops via a special eSATA port.

How Do You Create an External Hard Drive Backup?

There are two ways to create an external hard drive backup. The first is to purchase an external hard drive or USB drive. The second is to purchase or use an existing internal hard drive and install it in an external hard drive enclosure. In either case, when you cannot the drive to your PC or Mac, you will be prompted to specify if you want to use the external drive for backups. Simply select the affirmative and follow the on-screen prompts.
