Windows 10 Not Recognizing External HDD


Jun 17, 2017
I have a 2.5" 5400rpm HDD that I've put in a generic Anker enclosure in order to carry media on. The HDD has worked with every pc I own, 2 others. I just bought a new Windows 10 laptop, and I'll start a file transfer from the HDD to the laptop, and windows will stop recognizing it at some point during the transfer and just stop tranferring the files. I've tried updating the drivers, using different USB ports, I've reformatted the drive multiple times, nothing works. Please help!
