Large capacity drives (tested with up to 1TB) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities.The external hard drive enclosure features a tool-less design that eliminates the time (and tools) that would typically be required to install or replace a hard drive in an external enclosure. The USB-based enclosure also offers the "One Touch Backup" feature, which lets you automate backups that can be triggered at the touch of a button, instead of having to manually drag and drop folders and files from the host computer to the external HDD.The UNIV2510U2V USB IDE/SATA hard drive enclosure includes a USB Y-cable that when (both USB connectors) are connected to the powered host computer eliminates the need for an external power adapter for the external drive.
