This guide shows how to install a 2.5-inch hard drive into the aluminum enclosure sold by iFixit. The enclosure can hold either a SSD or a standard 2.5-inch (platter) hard drive, as long as they have the proper SATA connectors.

If you have a silicone enclosure, follow this guide instead.

You will need to plug the enclosure into a computer to access it. From there, you can format the drive or retrieve data.
