This lightweight and easy to use USB Type-C to SATA Cable allows you to connect any 2.5" SATA harddrive, both mechanical + 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 at 5Gbps transfer speeds. Please note that larger 3.5" HDDs require additional power and are not supported by this adapter. Consider our USB 3.0 to SATA adapter for larger 3.5" drives.
This adapter is the holy grail for anyone burdened with the task of rescuing old computers, or uses with huge data storage requirements, archiving data onto external drives. 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!
Designed for all 2.5" SATA hard drives, 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).
Please note: This device cannot circumvent NTFS drive encryption for accessing protected folders.
