A Closer Look
Using the USB Enclosure
One of the really nice things about this package is the USB enclosure. You can pop the SSD into the enclosure and use it as an external portable drive, all be it connected via USB 2.0, so you don’t get the SSD speed. The idea behind the enclosure is for use during the upgrade/migration process from your existing drive to the SSD, but it can also be used afterwards as well.
The enclosure has a lock/unlock switch, that after putting in the unlock position you slide off the base.
You then just fit the SSD into the enclosure and put the back on again and lock the switch.
Then you just connect the USB 2.0 cable that was supplied in the box to enclosure.
When the enclosure is then connected to a computer, a blue light shows its in operation.
