Overview

The SAT2510U3REM Removable 2.5" SATA HDD Backup System/Mobile Rack turns a 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD drive into a removable hard drive that can also be used externally as a normal 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, providing a convenient method of creating backups that can then be removed for safe keeping/archiving.

When outside of the drive bay, the enclosure can be used as a standard external USB 3.0 hard drive with up to 5 Gbps of data transfer bandwidth (10x more than USB 2.0). This makes the removable 2.5" hard drive bay an excellent accessory for people working with very large files and need to take them on the road.

For even more versatility, StarTech.com offers the SAT2510U3S, an extra 2.5in SATA Hard Drive Enclosure for the SAT2510U3REM, providing multiple enclosures that can be swapped in and out of the main computer. The SAT2510U3REM is also backward compatible with the USB 2.0 model, SAT2510U2S.

The SAT2510U3REM Removable HDD Backup System is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a hard drive rack, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • SATA and SAS cables
  • Hard drives
  • Hard drive rack

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the cables, hard drives, and hard drive rack in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
  • Use a different cable, hard drive, and hard drive rack in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test the hard drive and hard drive rack, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • To check Disk Management, press the Windows key + R, type diskmgmt.msc, and press Enter.  Check to see if your hard drive is listed.
  • If the hard drive is listed with unallocated space, it needs to be formatted. Right-click unallocated and click New Simple Volume. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the reformatting.

Note: Formatting a hard drive erases all of the data on it. Make sure that you back up all of your data before you reformat the hard drive.

  • If the hard drive is listed as healthy but does not have a drive letter assigned to it, for example, C:, right-click healthy and click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Click Add, assign a drive letter, and click OK.

Note: A formatted hard drive will not show up in Computer or My Computer until it has a drive letter assigned to it.
