Anyone know of a 2.5″ to 3.5″ converter so I can put a 2.5 SSD drive in a Supermicro 3.5 SATA hot swap bay? The one I purchased does not seem to work.
watch the video there
its tricky to do this with a hotswap bay, because the 2.5″ drive’s connectors are the same distance from the edge as the 3.5″, so you have to secure the disk without anything between the near side and drive, yet the screw holes aren’t even close to in the same lace. I managed to kludge this with a HP gen6 bay.
HOWEVER, Supermicro DOES have 2.5″ drive trays that fit many of their hotswap 3.5″ bays. thats by far the best way to do it.
