Removable Hard Drive Enclosure



A Removable Hard Drive Enclosure is a device that houses a hard drive, in order to facilitate the insertion/installation and removal of the drive from a host computer. This device provides an easy way to make backups or transfer the entire contents of a hard drive to another computer equipped with a removable hard drive bay, without having to spend the time required to uninstall the hard drive through conventional methods. Removable Hard Drive Enclosures are also referred to as Mobile Racks.
