How to take drives in and out, they seem to be spring held instead of screws.


Answers :

These springs are in different variations. But most of the times, just press the spring (sometimes only on one side of the disk) and slide the disk out (or in).

This is the great advantage of these springs, you don't need a screwdriver any more.

Precautions: Turn of the pc and disconnect power.
