Hard disk housings and hard disk installation frames
Hard disk housings provide dust and dirt protection to hard disks which are for internal use and do not require a cover. This allows them to be connected as an external device via a USB connection to desktop computers, laptops or monitors, game consoles and TVs. This is handy when a new computer is employed and old, still functional disks continue to be used. A time-consuming installation in the new PC is not necessary. Housing with encryption mechanisms such as password protection back up important data against unauthorised access. Hard disk installation frames facilitate hard disk installation in the corresponding housing slots. Thus, they can be installed faster and replaced as quickly as necessary. Furthermore, 2.5-inch drives can be housed in 3.5-inch slots.
