As you can see in the picture you can see there's a small gap where you can see the pins of the SSD. This wasn't the case with the old hard drive as it's case had two small openings. On the other side of the SSD is a screw to keep it in place (not in the picture).
The new SSD is recognized and I was able to install a new OS without any problems. But I'm not sure if this could lead to problems in the future (I'm thinking of dust f.e.). So my question is:
Is it okay to leave the SSD like this? Should I try to remove the plastic thingies?
