The black Removable 2.5" SATA HDD Backup System/Mobile Rack for 3.5"/5.25" Bay from StarTech turns a 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD drive mounted in an enclosure into a removable hard drive that can also be used externally as a USB 3.0 enclosure. This 2.5" SATA removable hard drive bay can be mounted into any 3.5" or 5.25" front bay, to provide a hot-swap capable mobile rack. Drives can then be easily installed and removed from the computer system without having to open the computer case every time. This provides a convenient method of creating backups that can then be removed for safe keeping/archiving.

When outside the drive bay, the enclosure can be used as a standard external USB 3.0 hard drive with up to 5 Gb/s of data transfer bandwidth (10 times more than USB 2.0). This makes the removable 2.5" hard drive bay a suitable accessory for people working with very large files and need to take them on the road. One 2.5" SATA hard drive enclosure is included, and you can buy additional 2.5" SATA hard drive enclosures (SAT2510U3S) if you need multiple drives that can be swapped in and out of the main computer. This backup system is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0.
