This lightweight and easy to use USB 3.0 to SATA Cable allows you to connect any SATA harddrive, both 2.5" and 3.5" drives + SDD drives, to your Windows or Mac computer. Once connected, the drive will appear just like a connected USB drive, ready to access the files directly over the 5Gbps USB 3.0 Super-Speed connection. SSD and 2.5" drives work simply from the USB to SATA Cable adapter itself, while larger 3.5" HDDs require the included power supply connection. Supports Desktop and Laptop sized hard drives including SSD (Solid State Drives) up to SATA III.
This adapter is the holy grail for anyone burdened with the task of rescuing old computers. It allows quick and simple access to any hard drive without the need to fiddle around with expensive caddies or taking the trouble to connect it to a motherboard - just plug it in like a big USB stick! For those with immense data storage requirements, this adapter is essential so you can have a store of external HDDs for unlimited storage, without needing to have them installed inside your PC.
For all internal 2.5" and 3.5" SATA hard drives from most PCs and Laptops, this cable basically turns them into USB flash drives. Just plug and play on any Windows OS between XP and 10 or on Mac OS X and the drive will pop up like any other mass storage device. Should also work on most other modern operating systems with USB Mass Storage support including Linux and Android (Fat32 formatted drives only).
Supports USB 2.0 and 3.0 for compatibility with all modern computers at the fastest speeds, and includes the requisite adapter cables to work with data and power for all common hard drive types. Supports FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS hard drives, too! It's a one-stop-shop for accessing data off old hard drives or performing mass backups when regular portable hard drives aren't readily available. Also a handy tool for simple data recovery attempts!
Includes a power pack for mains power since full-size 3.5" hard drives are too hungry for USB alone.
Please note: This device cannot circumvent NTFS drive encryption for accessing protected folders.
