When installing more than one drive, do not stack drives on
your work surface. Hard disk drives are very susceptible to
mechanical shock and can be damaged by a drop as short as
one-quarter of an inch. Take care when unpacking and
handling the drive. If the drop would crack an egg, it will
damage the drive.
3. Drive spacers attach to the disk drive module with four small feet.
To remove a drive spacer from a disk drive slot:
a. Slide the drive spacer back, a fraction of an inch away from your body.
b. Tilt up the front of the drive spacer to disengage the front two feet.
c. Pull the drive spacer forward slightly to disengage the back two feet
4. Open the drive module by pressing in on the locking latch at the end of the
drive ejector handle and pulling open the handle.
Be careful when you open the ejector handle. Extreme force
can snap off the handle. Be careful not to damage the light
pipes as you insert the drive. They are very fragile.
