Better buy a portable external HDD for 3k. For 3.5 HDD you need a external power and also bulky. You won’t get it cheap as well.

Actually i dont need it purposefully but i have some data (for about 150 GB) on it which i need to access but not very frequently ! So why im searching for it without throwing it away/keeping it idle.

How much are you willing to spend?


Try this in local market you can get it cheaper,

There are many good alternative available,  but costly at the moment

@Roushh any suggestions bro ?

Buy an HDD enclosure case from local market and attach your HDD on it. Works fine. I have used one years ago.

You will also find some enclosure cases online but they will not be cheap.

If you live in Delhi NCR then buy from Nehru place.

It’s a mechanical drive . Shakes and movement to hd can cause damage when it’s running .

I think I bought it for ~600-700 rs a few years ago. No idea about current price.
