2.5 HD Enclosure case copying files from Internal 2nd HD, 2.5 case stopped working, help ? Answered

I recently purchased a 2.5 HD Enclosure Case with USB cables and it worked fine while reading an old 2.5 HD that I inserted in it. When I was copying files from an 2nd Internal HD, it was copying fine then noted. file in use, stopped copying, turned off computer, now I can't get the 2.5 Enclosure Case, with a HD in it, to be seen on my computer with the other HD's and USB's. Was the HD that I was copying to ruined or can I restore it in a procedure ? I would really appreciate anyone's assistance to fix the problem with the 2.5 HD Enclosure case that is not being seen on my computer, even tho the red light is on noting that it is connected via USB. Thanks.   mjy88keys

There is always a small chance that the drive was affected but probably not. Some of those enclosures are just made to cheap and fail when put under a load. I prefer using just the USB to SATA adapter and not bothering with an enclosure unless its going to be portable. Keep everything in an antistatic bag and you can then use the adaper for other drives as well. Do you need a suggestion as to where to find one? I have one special for notebook drives that is USB 3. I use it for upgrading/cloning notebook hard drives to SSD drives. It handles loads of data at super speed and is pretty inexpensive. They come both with and without cloning software.

Sounds like the enclosure got burned out some how. Not much you can do about it. So you'll pobably need to buy a new enclosure.
