Answers :

The harddisk is more than likely in a "cage-like" enclosure at the front of your PC. It will look rectangular and have dimensions of approximately 5.75 in × 1.63 in × 8 in and have a yellow,red & black power cable along with a data cable, which can look like a gray "ribbon" cable with a red stripe on one side (Parallel ATA drive) or a thinner solid red cable with a small black connector (Serial ATA drive)
