Clear Your Desk Space By Hiding Your Hard Drives
There comes a time when you need an external hard drive to either backup your system, offload some files onto another computer or just for mass storage. But when they’re all connected by USB, it can become a cluttered mess of wires and what-not all over your desk. How do you fix that without making it look bad? Turns out there are some sneaky ways you can do it with just a few basic parts.
Option 3 — Velcro: For the drives that I want to keep portable yet want to keep off of my desk, I use industrial-strength Velcro to affix them to the bottom of my desk. Then I run the USB cable to a USB hub that’s also secured to the underside of the desk, keeping things nice and neat. It’s the best of both worlds, and the velcro is more than strong enough to hold up the drive.
