Swapping out Optical Drive for 2nd Hard Drive, Anyone done it?

 

Hey all!

 

Just posting to see if anyone has experience with upgrading their Lenovo laptops/notebooks with 2nd hard drives through the use of hard drive caddys?

 

I have been looking through this website which includes many 'how-to's and video guides on the process. There are also plenty on youtube. However I am reluctant to go out on a limb.

They have entire production lines dedicated to certain brands of laptops and notebooks and this includes Lenovo. However, I couldn't find one for my specific model, G570, but I am able to find them for the G430/G530G560. Link: http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_7&products_id=290

 

Are the dimensions of these laptops the same as the G570?

 

Other Links I thought might fit the G570 if its possible

In a perfect world it should. But I never seem to have that luck Smiley Wink

 

Can anyone confirm the similar dimensions or if the physical models are the same? (for the G560 to G570) for example
