As the drive, a 2TB WD Black 3.5", was bought in November 2013 and had a 5-year warranty I got the receipt and packaging, removed the drive from the enclosure, and took it to the supplying retailer, PC World. They called up the transaction on their system and said we'd need to contact WD. So while in the shop we logged in to my WD account that I'd created some years ago, noted the drive was registered, so input the faults. RMA accepted so posted it back to WD. A replacement drive has now been shipped.
As the enclosure is also nearly 5 years old, should I put the new drive in the old enclosure, or buy a new enclosure?
Any recommendations for a decent 3.5" enclosure, so many seem to be built very sloppily?
As the old one is USB 2 I'd also take the opportunity and buy a USB 3 enclosure.
We have more and more laws, and less and less enforcement
