How to choose enclosures for 10TB drive

I need to mount a 10TB WD Red NAS drive (Part Number: WD100EFAX) in an HDD enclosure and connect it to the server with a USB3.x connection for secondary backup storage purposes.

Without going into the brands of the enclosure, how do I choose such enclosures? I found that some enclosures do not support 10TB drives that is why I am at a loss.

Thank you.

Hi Edward288080,

Maybe you should try contacting WD’s Technical Support about this.
