@codl i've definitely seen these. no idea if they're good but I Seen Them

@codl an "optical bay" is a 5.25" bay; might help with searching

@codl yeah, "5.25" to 3.5" adapter" turns up a ton of adapters on Newegg

idk what you use where you live, but the object you want definitely exists

@wxcafe ive used duct tape for SSDs before but i wouldn't trust any duct tape to hold a continuously vibrating object in place

@wxcafe when will backblaze release stats on which hard drive keep-in-place technology leads to longest drive life
