How to Convert a Bare Hard Drive or Ssd Into an External Usb-c / Usb 3.1 Drive

Solid State Drives (SSDs) are quickly replacing traditional hard drives in many newer desktop computers and laptops.

What’s more, many of the newest computers, tablets and smartphones now come with the newer, and much smaller USB-C ports.

If you own a computer or mobile device that only has a USB-C port, it makes sense to use an external drive enclosure that also supports this modern connection type.

Luckily, the awesome new USB-C external drive enclosures don’t cost any more than their USB 3.0 predecessors and they work perfectly with both traditional 2.5 inch hard drives and SSDs!

Using one of these awesome new enclosures is quite easy. Simply open the case, then plug the bare drive into the SATA connector and close it back up again.

Congrats, you now have an external USB-C hard drive or SSD!
