    Got an SSD and hard drive enclosure. Comparing my Dell HHD, I got around 90 Mb/sec transfer speed. With the SSD, I'm getting 265 Mb/sec transfer speed. The SSD is great, once I figured out how to format it. (You don't want to know)
    I understood that the SSD + hard drive enclosure are already working. If they are, the drive is already initialized (MBR or GPT) and formatted as NTFS.
    If you can't see the drive under Explorer, the drive isn't initialized. Open Disk Manager (C:\Windows\System32\diskmgmt.msc), select the drive and initialize it as MBR or GPT (I suggest to initialize it as GPT). It will also format the drive.
    To just format a drive, open Explorer, right click on the drive and select Format.

    No. I have never worked with an SSD. When I got it, I plugged it into the enclosure, then plugged it into the laptop. Other than a couple of "beeps" telling me something was connected, I could not see the SSD in Explorer. So I went on line to find "How to format an SSD" and after several dead ends, I finally got the laptop to recognize the SSD and formatted it NTFS. And yes, I had fun in Disk Management. Had to try it several times to get it to work right.
