Backplane for 2x 5.25" bay
For 8x 2.5" HDDs or SSDs
Keylock prevents accidental and unauthorized access
2x 50 mm fan
Eight times a week!
Eight 2.5" HDDs or SSDs fit into this enclosure and can be installed in 2x 5.25" bay in a PC, server or similar device. The enclosure is HotSwap capable, so the hard disks can be replaced without having to remove the enclosure.
Better safe than sorry
The enclosure is made entirely of metal and the trays are provided with a lock that prevents accidental opening and unauthorized access. An LED also indicates operation and disk access for each storage medium.
When it’s hot
The aluminum dissipates heat very well and the cooling of the drives during heavy operation is ensured by two 50 mm fans on the back. An alarm warns of fan failure.

Compatibility with the host computer
Are cables included in the package content?
If you want to connect a USB Type-C® enclosure to a USB Type-A connector, it is possible to use an adapter from ICY BOX (IB-CB015). The same works in the other direction from USB Type-A to USB Type-C® (IB-CB003).
Up to which hard disk capacity can I equip the ICY BOX?
Can a HDD be removed from an external HDD and installed into an ICY BOX?
Are special drivers required?
Can the enclosure also be connected to USB 2.0 ports?
Do I need a power supply for my external 2.5" enclosure?
Why is the HDD/SSD not recognized?
If the HDD/SSD is new, it must first be correctly formatted and partitioned before it is displayed in the system.
Use a different USB port on your notebook or PC.
Check if the power supply is connected and the external enclosure is switched on with the on/off switch (only for 3.5" enclosures).
Update the USB 3.0 / USB 3.1 drivers of your notebook/PC or mainboard. Current USB drivers can be found on the website of your mainboard manufacturer.
Everything is connected, but no function.
To test your components, proceed as follows:
- Use the cables, hard drives, and enclosures on another system to see if your system is the source of the problem.
- Use a different cable, HDD/SSD, and hard disk enclosure one after the other to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in a different setup.
