I chose a late-model Western Digital 500 GB hard drive for use with the BytePac kit. The “enclosure” is fairly compact for use with a 3.5” drive as seen below.
To install the drive, simply slide off the external sleeve
open the box, fold over the “tensioning” device,
and place the drive in the box with the connections closest to you the picture below.
Close the box, slip the sleeve back into place, and fold up the flap that exposes the drive connections.
On the bottom side, fold up the stand that also exposes the bottom cooling vents.
If everything is reassembled correctly, this is what the finished BytePac looks like.
Next, we have the cabling system. The longer cable included with the kit has a combination SATA/power connection on one end and an eSATA connector on the other end.
This cable plugs in the “powerbox”.
Coming out of the powerbox is an eSATA socket for use with an eSATA to USB 2.0 cable (or optional USB 3.0 cable),
and a power socket for use with the included power brick.
The finished cable setup should look like this:
Once one has assembled these items , simply find a spot for the enclosure and plug the associated cables into a USB port and power socket.
