Ultrabay device removal and installation - X6 UltraBase


  • If you are removing a hard drive, you should first make a backup copy of all the information on the drive, and then turn the computer off.
  • Replace the hard drive only if you upgrade it or have it repaired. The connectors and bay of the hard drive were not designed for frequent changes, or drive swapping.
  • Do not drop the drive or subject it to physical shocks.
  • Put the drive on a material, such as soft cloth, that absorbs the physical shock.
  • Do not apply pressure to the cover of the drive.
  • Do not touch the connector.
  • Never remove the drive while the system is operating, in standby mode, or in hibernation mode.
