xyeovillian: I have put in the enclosure still can't access it


Although that is in English, it still does not mean anything to us.

How have you tried to access it?

Can you open a command prompt and do "dir" of each partition that has been allocated a drive letter?

Can you list the contents of each directory?

If not, what is the error message you are being shown, historically, error messages have given clues to the problem.

Can you see the data under Users on the drive?

"Documents and Settings" is a special file for compatibility with XP.

Even on a Windows 8.1 box the "Documents and Settings" folder behaves oddly, think of it as a symbolic link.

oh yes try the "Users" folder - it has all your stuff. things you need and things windows think it needs. just copy it call and then sort through it. there is nothing else you need from the drive.

If you've gotten all your data, and you've checked it's all valid, sure. I would personally keep an image of the drive using Macrium Reflect Free if I wasn't sure. That can take heaps of space because if you've done drive recovery you'd need to get each sector not just sectors with files.

I once bought a Seagate Expansion (USB 3 external) that showed in BIOS, and showed in Drive Management, but I was absolutely unable to mount it. 

This was the second Expansion drive I'd bought, and the first just worked out of the box.  The interesting thing is the problem drive appeared to have been used before (the box seal was broken, and the internal wrapping had been opened).  So I took it back to Warehouse Stationary, and the swapped it.  I made sure the new one was properly sealed; took it home, and it worked fine out of the box.

So I wondered if a previous buyer of the problem drive, had done something to it.
