I have a client that has a Dell Vostro 220 they'd like to add a second hard drive to. How can you remove the metal caging to get access to the drives? It doesn't seem to be removeable.

Branded computers usually have a slider, push-on or latch to remove the whole cage and then dismantle the hdd outside.

Try to look for etched arrows or instruction within the casing.

Turn the computer over and remove the panel that houses the hard drive. Usually the largest of the removeable panels on the bottom. After that is done you should be able to remove the plate holding in the  hard drive and then remove the hard drive to add the second.
