I Ordered a Toshiba 2TB driving, thinking I would just swap it out with the 500G drive already in my passport. nope.
1) The WD Passport drives have the miniUSB connector soldered to the drive. No swappy swappy.
2) Shit was too big to fit anyway

It is actually pretty hard to find an enclosure that takes a 15mm 2.5 inch SATA.
Also worth noting: many of these USB 3.0 drive enclosures are capped at 1TB ( or less ).
I finally found one for $30- hopefully it doesn’t suck too bad. Could have bought a new Seagate or WD USB 3.0 2 TB enclosure for $40 cheaper. Sucks.
Time spent: 2 weeks of waiting for products to arrive ( and counting ) : -20
$$$$: Could have solved problem for $40 less AND gotten product already: -20
Successfully upgraded to 2TB backup drive: yeah sort of I guess + 10
