Here’s a simple way to mount your usb-powered portable drives safely out of the way while you work with your laptop. All you need is a package of stick-on velcro pads.

    Yes, I now have permanent fuzzy Velcro fits on my laptop…which was what held me up from doing this earlier. I finally caved and did it, because I was tired of accidentally bumping the cord/drive and the connection dropping.

    Velcro dots? Meh. Doing this is SO worth it! Makes using portable drives SO much easier! And no more dropped connections!
