    @khonglap you can buy these hard drives virtually anywhere ebay,,amazon, or your local computer parts store has the cheapest prices for Hard Drives for I suggest u buy a laptop external hard drive because a laptop hard-drive case/enclosure is cheaper than a desktop hard drive case. Once u hook up your HD to your comp just click were ever your HD is located and click format disk very simple.

    @CARTMEN117 You can just use the usb cable supplied with your Hard Drive enclosure/case if u can see the cable hes holding has two usb plugins one for power the other sending and receiving info. I bought a cheap enclosure/case off ebay and the usb cable supplied had two usb plugins i paid less than 6 bucks w/free ship for it 2.5″.

    if you use a old hardrive out of a lap top and build one with a case how do you remove all the data off the hardrive if you use a old 2.5 hardrive

    Wouldn’t a ordinary case that fits it just work as well?
    If you have an book for example you could just glue it up and make one of those “secret” box-case and use that instead? Would look little more fun with a book…
