London GB
Just make sure that all the casing and adapters are removed from the hard drive before trying it fit into the enclosure. Very quick to install the USB and fery fast for data retrival.
The hard drive is a really tight fit into the enclosure case and it is a bit difficult to extract the drive after downloading the data..
