You'll have to take a measurement... but there is plenty of room in the
case- you can almost fit in two drives stacked on top of each other (but
I would not recommend this as it gets too hot and there is not enough
room for proper airflow).
The older drives were quite thick, eg. 20-22mm, while almost all new
ones are in the 13mm range... so you should be fine.

Another option is a 2.5->3.5" adapter, then you can put the new drive
temporarily in a PC and untar the images/your backups to it.
