USB 3.0 Internal Hard Drives Bays
Aug 27, 2012, 2:12 PM
I need hot swappable HD bays in my computer, but can't find any online to buy.
Tired of having USB HD docks sitting ontop of my computers.
Apparently SATA is hot swappable, but this never worked, and I've built 3 computers - didn't work on any. The only thing that works as hot swappable is a SATA -> USB hard drive dock.
So, where can I buy an internal USB 3 hard drive bay, or at the very least an internal HD bay that is hot swappable?

My experience is different from yours - I use SATA bays and I can plug in a drive while the system is running, use it, and then eject it (Safe to Remove) and pull the drive. I wonder what is different in our setups?
