I have the Ultrabay IV hard drive adapter and there is no mention anywhere of a spacer that is clearly required to prevent the drive moving around in the caddy. Otherwise there is a 3mm gap all the way around the drive and the slightest jolt would cause it to move and disconnect (and fail). Can you let me know how to secure the drive in the ultrabay caddy? Lenovo must make a spacer or set of rails for a drive in the adapter, because otherwise the ultrabay caddy is utterly useless and a total waste of money.

Thanks Mithun for your prompt reply. Down below Pipspeak is having some issue with Lenovo Adapter Harddisk for TP IV to T440p. It would kind of you if you can help us on resolving this issue from your end. I am also quoting his concern for your reference


"I have the Ultrabay IV hard drive adapter and there is no mention anywhere of a spacer that is clearly required to prevent the drive moving around in the caddy. Otherwise there is a 3mm gap all the way around the drive and the slightest jolt would cause it to move and disconnect (and fail). Can you let me know how to secure the drive in the ultrabay caddy?
