    I have a massive music/movie collection that I store on an external HDD that won't fit on my internal SSD. I am currently carrying around a WD 1tb external that is quite annoying, has anyone come up with a solution for storing/attaching external HDD's to your macbook pro so they don't move around / in the way? I was thinking of a hook or velcro to the lid of the Macbook?

    Double Stick Velcro would be the most logical solution, however, is there really a need to have your collection with you at all times? Could you get a physically smaller hard drive which might be easier to carry around, or one that you can leave in your carry bag and connect via a longer cable or WiFi (and obviously using Bus power instead of external power).

    This might help, you just need to get a 2.5" drive to place inside.
