I have a Lenovo W540 i7 laptop, 32GB ram and Samsung EVO 500GB SSD.
Running Ubuntu 16.04.
Plug in 2 1/2 inch HGST 500GB HD into the Thremaltake & it mounts fine.
Copying my Home directory to the Thermaltake BlackX 5G USB drive fails before finish because the Drive goes READ ONLY.
I've replicated this several times now.
