Can someone link me to a suitable enclosure on Amazon if possible that would work please as have never done this before

Your local independent computer shop will probably stock them. They may be willing to check it for you for free. It might be worth doing that first?
I'd get a HDD dock instead.

got a link please?
Or just plug it into you PC if its not a laptop

laptop only
I'd get an enclosure if you have kids, the docking stations aren't a great idea when they're running about.

Do you need usb - is the drive sata/estata?

NB - The failure is down to all that nazi pron you've downloaded.:lol:

A dock is more practical to just test it, buf it's it's longterm, then an enclosure may be better.

I'm not disputing the practicalities on using a dock in most circumstances - but if you have young kids (bit younger than yourself) then they're entirely impractical, which was my point.
no kids,never ever

will get a dock as that looks less messing

irony is that is the only drive I have with legit stuff on it!

thanks and rep left
