Rocket Fish Hard Drive Enclosure Kit 2.5″

Just recently, I had to transfer all my files from one computer to a newer one, after the old one died. Instead of throwing away all the memories… aka 5 years of pictures, music, and documents, I went out and bought a Rocket Fish Hard Drive Enclosure Kit to salvage the Hard Drive. This was my first time at trying anything made by RocketFish and at first I will have to say, I wasn’t expecting any great things. But, they did amazing and it got the job done extremely well and extremely effective.

It uses a Y-USB cable and it does take two USB ports…but thats common with external hard drives since it needs to receive power from a source. The kit comes with everything that you will need to make the transfer successful.  The Y-USB cord, small screw driver with extra screws, and a carrying case.

After you are done using the kit, you can keep the saved data on a safe location or wipe it clean by formatting the HDD and using the kit as an external hard drive back up.

Best Buy offers the Rocket Fish Hard Drive Enclosure Kit for $49.99 but we’ve found them for as little as $4 from Amazon which is WAY to cheap for how handy this can be.

Straight out of the box, you will find an installation disk that takes about 5 minutes to instal. It has a very easy to use navigation and installation. Once installed, you are prompted to hook up your rocket fish and your computer will take care of the rest.
