Drive failure in an enclosure

Recommended Posts

I have had 2 hard drives fail in the same enclosure - got louder and louder until the motors failed. Granted they were old (>3 yrs). Is it possible that there could be an issue with the enclusure?

Anything is possible. Did you check the drive temperature in the enclosure? Older drives may well need more cooling than the enclosure could provide.
