" ...  Cover of enclosure easily removed and HD connects securely, held in place by foam bumpers .  ...  "
comment
" ...  If removing a drive, the foam pads on the sides do a good job of keeping the HDD in place, so it can be a bit daunting trying to get one out at first - the best method I found is to place the unit flat on a firm surface and insert fingernails on both sides of the top of the HDD at the connector end, and pull back towards you firmly to detach it - then you can lift it straight out.  ...  "
