Thank you for your question.
You'd use what we call a 'hard drive enclosure'. What's the physical size of the external hard drive that you want to use? 2.5 inch? 3.5 inch?
The below device draws power from the eSATA or USB ports so no need for an extra power cable. It accommodates 2.5 inch drives only.
