Asked by: Thuan
If you are referring to being able to remove the drive from the enclosure, it is possible according to some online users who have successfully done so but we could not guarantee it since we are unable to verify this information and this will void the warranty on the drive. We do not recommend it.

Does using encryption affect performance?

Does using encryption affect performance?
Asked by: David
Slightly, the data must buffer while being encoded and then written, it should not affect the longevity of the drive or increase power consumption enough to notice. I have two currently, one on a ps4 and another to backup a raid5 array and notice no difference between the two uses.

question

Is there any chance of this product over heating? I plan to use it as storage, but I often run Finalcut ProX, and or Adobe Photoshop on devices intended for storage.
Asked by: John
In the normal vertical position they get pretty warm. The ventilation in these hard plastic cases is not great and on long runs they will get toasty. I run them horizontally and use a small fan ($15) and run them for hours. They stay cool and never tip over. They are great drives and never seem to wear out!
