I'm looking to a add secondary 3.5" HDDs into a couple of Dell Precision workstations that I support.

The units have the facility to mount a second drive of this size, but the plastic caddy is only provided for the (factory-fitted) primary HDD.

I initially thought that these would have been fairly common but I can't see them as spares on the Dell website and although I have come across a couple on eBay, the shipping costs make the proposition somewhat ludicrous.

Does anyone know of somewhere that these could be obtained locally?

A link to the type of unit I'm after is

Many thanks

Thank you all for the replies - certainly hadn't thought of the recycling option.

Managed to find some at Computer Recycling.

Appreciate your assistance.
