Caddy for extra 2.5in drive in 3050 Tower

Jump to solution

My Inspiron Optiplex 3050 Tower has slots for 2 extra 2.5in drives, as well as power and SATA slots for one. I have a 4Tb 2.5in HDD which I plan to use for storing the large files I work with, but I see it needs a caddy to fit the HDD into the slot. I am struggling to find the part number for this. To be clear, it's a 2.5in caddy, not an adaptor for a 3.5in drive. The picture below is taken from the manual.

Thanks in advance for any helpDell-Caddy.Jpg

I assume you mean an Optiplex 3050 and not an Inspiron. Try the following sites.

Thanks for those, and yes, I meant Optiplex. D'oh! I'm UK-based, so am looking at different websites. I have seen ones similar to the ones you've suggested, but they looked different to the one in the manual. The one in the manual seems to have a small "platform" on the right and "hooks" on the left: hence my confusion. But the final picture in the first ebay item looks extremely similar to my setup.

 

Are there any part numbers I could search for?

Try this...even better. And the part number is 0X9FV3.
