If your externel hd "dies"...

Some of you may not know this so, with apologies to those of you who are already aware of it, here goes.
If you have an external HD and the drive goes "belly-up" there's no need to ditch the entire unit - you can open the enclosure, remove the "clapped-out" drive and replace it with a new one thus saving some money as the cost of a new drive is somewhat less than the cost of an external HD ( the jumpers are best set at "cable select" ). I've posted this in the "Helproom" as I wasn't sure as to the best forum for it.
