So, it was time for an upgrade(1/2TB fit nicely).
The down side being, now I had a 2.5" Harddrive, with no laptop to use it.
With 256GB thumbdrives, and multi-terabyte external harddrives... these was no reason to put this in a case, as an external.
So what to do?
Increase desktop storage.
But 2.5" drives don't fit in normal desktop cases.
So here's how I fix-d-it.
Step 1: Get Your Stuff Together
Next, grab a broken 3.5" harddrive. Any capacity will work. Ide(pata), Sata, Scsi even MFM will work.
I used an old IDE Seagate that had developed terminal errors.
Step 2: Dissassemble the 3.5" Drive
If my pictures don't work for you, there are plenty of 'ibles explaining the process :-)
Step 3: Blueprint or Kludge. the Choice Is Yours.
Step 4: My Kludge Layout
Step 5: Drilling
This allows for a little bit of fudging, if you don't drill exactly center.
Keeps the screws from binding.
