Hitachi Simple Drive – HDD Removal

As the server was build (see here), I needed some storage and having a couple of these about I decided to remove the HDD and install it in the server.

Flip over the drive and slide the plastic bottom back towards the power socket

Then remove the circuit board screws.Pinch the plastic together and slide out the plastic cover.Then slide out the drive – its just held in with friction.Hard drive out.Plastic fittings removed each side.Here’s the board, could come in handy as any 3.5″ SATA hard drive can be fitted.

Anyhow drive out and installed into the server.
