Just a note for aussie puppians(, not sure for others).

Seagate 2TB EXPANSION DESKTOP (NOT THE BACKUP) Drives with a code of STBV2000300 / Regulatory Model SRD00F2 Assembled in Thailand, actually have a SATA drive inside them, even though the External Interface is USB2. Be aware it's a 2 Platter drive though, you need the height.

Since they can usually be got when on special for around $A90.00, it's a cheap way of upgrading a PC and they are not a slow drive either.

If your careful in opening them up, (start at the connector end and then work down both side together,) you also now have a resealable box to put your old sata drive into.

When I first saw the topic title, I thought you were taking about floppy drives.

EDIT: OP changed topic title.
