Product ID: S2510BU3PW
The S2510BU3PW USB 3.0 HDD Enclosure features Touchpad Encryption, enabling you to turn almost any 2.5-inch SATA hard drive (HDD) or solid state drive (SSD) into an AES-encrypted external hard drive. The enclosure supports large capacity hard drives (tested with up to 1TB), maximizing system storage expansion and backup capabilities.
Using an Advanced Encryption Standard algorithm (256-bit AES), all of the data on hard drives installed within the enclosure is securely protected from unauthorized users. Encryption is performed completely in-hardware and real-time, ensuring maximum performance while eliminating the need for complicated software installation. Access to the encrypted content is allowed through the built-in touchpad, so any system that supports a USB storage device can be used to access the data.
The S2510BU3PW encrypted HDD enclosure is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

When you troubleshoot issues with a hard drive enclosure, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:
To test your setup components, try the following:
When you test the hard drive and hard drive enclosure, it is recommended that you do the following:
Note: Formatting a hard drive erases all of the data on it. Make sure that you back up all of your data before you reformat the hard drive.
Note: A formatted hard drive will not show up in Computer or My Computer until it has a drive letter assigned to it.
To confirm that the Mac OS detects your USB device, complete the following:
You may need to refresh the System Information page after you plug in your device. To do so, press Command + R with the System Information page open.
Your USB device is listed according to the name of the chipset. To determine the name of the chipset of your USB device, navigate to www.StarTech.com and look on the Technical Specifications tab for your product.
Hard drive enclosures require power from your system's USB port. Although you can plug in any standard SATA drive, USB ports only supply a limited amount of power and are not able to power all of the hard drives plugged into the system.
The power capabilities of the USB port combined with the power requirements of the attached hard drive will determine if the hard drive enclosure will work in your setup. The power (in mA) supplied by the USB port must be greater than the requirements of the hard drive.
A USB 2.0 port can supply a maximum of 500 mA (0.5 A), and a USB 3.0 port can supply a maximum of 900 mA (0.9 A).
You can usually find the power requirements of your hard drive in the technical specifications on the label of the hard drive or on the manufacturer's website.
To determine if your hard drive will work in this enclosure, on the product page, click the Technical Specifications tab, and do the following:
