Do you have you a question about the Seagate BarraCuda (5TB) 2.5 inch Hard Disk Drive (5400rpm) SATA 6Gb/s 128MB (Internal)?

Q: Hi there, I'm looking for replacement hard drive for Dell Inspiron 15R 5537. And would need a 2.5" hard drive. Is this hard drive compatible (will fit) my laptop? Regards Sharma
Answer by Website User on 6th February 2018
Normally with laptops these can only take a certain thickness of drive, this tends to mean anything of a 2TB drive would to too thick to fit in. But you would have to double check this with the manufacturer. - Matthewt

This is a 5Tb hard drive which will become my main drive, relegating the 2Tb to become an internal backup and the external back in the cloud. It works well and the only fiddle at the beginning was to partition the 5Tb so that it was all seen as one huge partition
