I have several HDD of 2TB and 3TB, all of them aren't connected, I only use them once in a while (usually), when I want to connect one of them I use an external enclosure and it works fine, but yesterday and about two months ago two of my 3TB drives just weren't more recognised, I formated them and now they're OK and work fine, but I loosed all the data that were in there, I did try to recover the data but the names of the files were 01, 02, 03, etc and the name of the files were very important.
Until now not one of the 2TB drives fail, only two 3TB, could the problem be in the controller of the external enclosure? Is it possible that it only "works better" with 2TB?
I just buyed an external HD (3TB) and now I'm using this controller with the 3TB HDs and the old controller with the 2TB drives.
Am I doing the right thing?
