I have an old internal hard drive I want to purchase a docking station for if it's possible. I'm not sure what I need but here are a couple I'm looking at:

OImaster USB 3.0 to SATA External Hard Drive Enclosure 270° Rotatable Design Docking Station for 7mm 9.5mm 2.5 Inch SATA HDD/SSD Tool Free [UASP Supported] Black

FIDECO USB 3.0 to SATA Dual Bay External Hard Drive Docking Station for 2.5/3.5 Inch SATA HDD SSD, USB Sata Dock with Offline Clone Function, Support 2X 10TB, Tool-Free

Info on hard drive

Not sure what other information I need to supply at this time?

Since the ST31000524AS is a 3.5" hard drive, your first choice of an enclosure above will not work.

You're welcome. 3.5 inch is the width of the hard drive. 3.5 inch are usually found in desktop computers and 2.5 inch in laptops.

I'm not a big fan of enclosures because of the constant opening and replacing the HDD of there is more than 1 HDD. I prefer the desktop docking station like your 2nd choice. Which is a 2 bay for both 2.5/3.5 HDD/SSD drives. Go with your 2nd pick but check different brands for pricing and reviews.

I have a case that has a docking station built into it. I use it all the time.
