If you have upgraded your PS3/PS4/laptop hard drive in the past (perhaps you put a bigger size in or invested in an SSHD/SSD), you may have a spare one of these!
If you do, don’t throw it away or let it sit in a drawer – put it in an enclosure and for a around £10/$15 and turn it into a fast and portable USB 3 ‘passport’ drive – ideal for transferring files and backing up your data.
Anyone can do this, it takes 5 minutes, is extremely easy and can be used in any laptop or desktop (Mac or Windows). It’s simply a case of buying an ‘Enclosure’ case like this one…
…slotting your hard drive into it, plugging it into your laptop or desktop and formatting it. It’s so easy and simple. I’m using mine as a backup for all my work and files.
