Problem on USB enclosure
I have an USB enclosure with ATA and SATA connection to HD. It is an economic product without brandname. Occasionally the ATA-HD can't be mounted for unknown reason after working a while. The HD was without problem, removed from workstation and workable.
# fdisk -lCode:

On mounting partition-1 following warning popup:Code:

Please advise where I have to check.
If to purchase another USB enclosure, where I have to pay attention? Any recommendation? TIA
