      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.
