Removable 2.5” SSD/HDD Enclosures for 3.5” Floppy Drive Bay

With modern technology becoming smaller and more portable, it’s important to make the most out of your limited space. One space-efficient solution is to use the external 3.5” drive bay (floppy bay) to store compact 2.5” hard drives and SSDs. With advances in modern storage technology, 2.5” SSD and HDD capacities and speeds have greatly increased, while their prices have dropped, making them a more viable storage solution, and their small size allows for versatility in how they are used. The 3.5” device bay can be used in many high-density configurations, including RAID, hot-swap, tray-less, and secure locking enclosures. ICY DOCK realized the great potential and needed for versatility to meet many different storage requirements, and created a line of SATA / SAS / NVMe HDD/SSD drive enclosures for the 3.5” device bay that covers a wide range of needs.
