Do 9 & 12.5mm laptop drives use the same mounting screw holes in e.g. a Toshiba 'HDD caddy'? Will the connector be the same?

My 5yr old Toshiba 10Gb 12.5 mm hard drive has died and the cheapest replacements I have found are new 20Gb 9mm drives by other manufacturers. Tihs would be much cheaper by buying a refurbished identical Toshiba drive.

I thought the size was 9.5mm and 12mm thickness

connections are the same and it should mount in the caddy ok.
