TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2018) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I’ve been at this gig in one fashion or another since 1988 - starting with desktops (remember Z-248’s?) and now I am in Portland, Oregon. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.


T530 UltraBay Secondary Storage

My company provides me with a Lenovo T530 that is a pretty nice piece of gear (what they provided is actually a seriously nice hunk of goodness – but that is just my opinion – others might think differently). However, the 250GB SSD is a tad small. Thinking to get around the storage limitation, I noted that I did not ever use the DVD drive, so how can I re-purpose that drive bay?

I found myself a spare 2.5 inch HDD sitting around my office, and a low-cost UltraBay adapter on eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/221069776771?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649) and I now have 500GB of secondary storage on board. And it hotswaps. Sweet!

I assume that this will work with the 420, 430, and 520 series as well. http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Ultrabay - pay attention to the type of UltraBay your laptop has and the feature set matrix.
