What are SC Drives?

Hi,

 

What is the difference between these two drives apart from "SC" in the title and what does SC stand for?

Thanks

Re: What are SC Drives?

Good question!

Maybe the Gen8/Gen9 drives with a "smart carrier", the HPE Smartdrives.

But I don't know for sure ...

Re: What are SC Drives? Drives with a SmartDrive Carrier!

"The new Generation 8 carriers are not compatible to older installations.

The only differentiator of the new drives is a SC (SmartDrive Carrier) in the part description. HPE SmartDrive Carrier, which proactively warns against data loss when removing a drive."

I found also SCC - smart carrier converter:

This is a 2.5" drive in a 3.5" carrier.


Hope this helps!
