An enclosure is simply a box that your hard drive will fit into. You open the enclosure, hook up the drive to the connections inside, plug it into your USB port.
Nothing difficult about it.
Your choice on whether to format it with an operating system.
I use mine strictly for back up purposes.
You can order them from newegg, tigerdirect, and other places.
Or find a computer shop that sells them.
Cost-not expensive. Research your options online.

Forgive me Queen-Evie I am being naive.
If all you want to do is back up, you don't have to set it to anything. I've edited my previous post-make sure you read it again.
All you do is hook it up to the USB port, let the computer find the new hardware, then you can begin the process of copying files and folders to it.
I recommend copying as opposed to moving. Make sure what you copied is on the external drive,
then you can delete the original files and folders if you want to.
Another thing I do-after I back up to the external drive, I unhook from the USB port. It isn't necessary to keep it plugged in.

Thank you all for your input.
I will keep you posted as to what setting if any I need to use.
You all have given me much needed information about the use, type and operation.
For that I thank you all
