Hard Drive too small for caddy

9 replies
Found 2nd Oct 2016
The hard drive fits the caddy, put I need something to pad it out .The caddy did some with some self adhesive strips which I lost!

What can I use that's safe? It'll be touching the hard drive itself so I need to make sure it's safe. Thanks

No it needs something to cushion it so it stops rocking around

Use 3 old plastic sim cards as a spacer.

What type of caddy are you using ? I've never seen one where you tape a drive inside. It should be a snug fit. Hard drives should only be mounted from their screw mountings unless it's an SSD and you velcro them anywhere.

It's an external caddy

You could buy some self adhesive strips or little circular foam pads?
