G560 SATA 300 hard drive question

I expect to replace my G560 Laptop soon and would like to get a hard drive enclosure so that I can use my current hard drive as an external drive on a new laptop.  In shopping for SATA drive enclosures, I have a choice of 2.5" vs. 3.5" hard drive sizes.  Does anyone know which size applies to the Lenovo G560 drives?

Hello and welcome,

 

Your laptop drive is 2.5".  The 3.5" drives are a desktop size.

 

According to the 3wbook the drive is 9.5mm thick: Lenovo 3000 and Essetial Notebooks; 2006 to 2013 (withdrawn models)  Some newer drives are 7mm thick.  I'd expect an external enclosure to handle either thickness.
