This innovative kit includes all the hardware and software needed to painlessly transfer all the data from an old hard drive to a new hard drive or SSD in three easy steps. To upgrade your notebook hard drive simply:
1) Insert your hard drive into EZ Upgrade enclosure and connect to the USB port on your computer.
The innovative EZ Upgrade enclosure connects to both Serial ATA (SATA) hard drives and solid state drives, making it the perfect tool to upgrade your notebook to a higher capacity hard drive or a fast SSD.
2) Run the included cloning software to copy all of your data, email, settings and OS from your notebook to the new drive.
Our Upgrade Suite CD has cloning software for both PC and Mac.
3) Swap out your old notebook drive with your new one, and you’re done!
Simply remove a couple of screws, slide out the drive in your notebook and replace it with your newly cloned drive from the EZ Upgrade enclosure. It really is that simple.
If that’s not enough, EZ Upgrade transforms the old hard drive from the notebook into a portable Super Speed USB 3.0 external backup and/or storage solution.
Once the new drive is installed, the old drive can be used in EZ Upgrade’s super fast USB 3.0 enclosure for external storage.

For most applications, a standard 5,400 RPM notebook drive provides great performance, but what if you are looking for even greater speeds?
In addition to increasing capacity, Apricorn's high performance 7,200 RPM drives can also increase your notebook's speed. The fastest available hard drive for notebook computers, Apricorn's Xtreme Drives have a 70% faster spindle speed and a 400% larger cache over 4200 RPM drives. These drives can improve overall system performance by 30%, providing desktop performance in a notebook computer.
Due to the higher spin rate of a high performance 7,200 RPM drive, you will need an upgrade kit with an AC Apdapter for additional power. To purchase an AC Adapter, click on the link below.
