Default How many uf do i need to cope with the HDD inrush current

In my computer i have 2 hot swap bays, i made my power cable and i used some "18 awg copper" wire, i think it is actually 20awg (got it on ebay...)

anyway i have some legit 18awg copper wire i was going to remake it and stick a couple caps at the end
my issue is when i am using one bay and i go to use the second the other bay looses power for a moment (if i use that drive to boot it as annoying)
i have some 470 low esr caps and i have some 10uf general purpose caps i could use as well as some 10uf low esr ones
my PSU is a Seasonic M12II 520W
