So, I'm getting a new HDD and there's no more slots left. I can't remove the other HDD's either. So, if I attach it on my PSU with Double Sided tape, is there a chance that my HDD will get damaged?
I'm kinda dumb so yeah please don't hate :tearsofjoy:

Definitely not recommended as the HDD will get too hot and that will lead to data corruption, data loss, bad sectors, you name it.

Better idea is to buy an external HDD, or if you already have an HDD buy an external enclosure for it.
