Computer Mobile Rack



A Mobile Rack is a device that houses a hard drive, in order to facilitate the insertion/installation and removal of the drive from from a host computer Drive Bay. 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. Mobile Racks are also referred to as Removable Hard Drive Enclosures, and Drive Racks.
