Not true, unless, as you say, there is something wrong with the drive and it's not readable.
it seems some enclosures do not allow this process and want the disk formatted before anything else can be done.

I have been gathering info on these and come across something that's worrying me.
I want to turn 1 or 2 HDDs into an external drive but before I do I would like some data from them.
After reading a review or 2 it seems some enclosures do not allow this process and want the disk formatted before anything else can be done.
Is this true, do some do this or do all do this? or did the reviewer have a faulty enclosure/HDD that required a format?

and was worried that I would not be able retrieve the data.
However, the problem is that this device is only of use to BRAND NEW DRIVES.
That is to say if you put drives in it with data already on, the external enclosure will not read them, instead it will only offer you the option to format!

Pros: Well built. Fairly cheap. Nice design. Has its own fan and power switch. love being able to use 1 USB port for 2 drives. i didnt have to format my old drives to put them in and the new one i did put it i could format seperately without any problems
