I picked up a new Roswill enclosure, it is USB 3.0 Now thinking about it now will it also work with USB 2.0.  On of my lap tops only has USB 2.0 I need to be able to back up all my machines, maybe I need to return it for a 2.0?

USB  3 is backward compatible with USB 2. When attached to a USB 2 port you will get USB 2 speeds from the USB 3 enclosure.
