First read this:

An ORICO 2588US3, which would "go to sleep/spin down" after 5 minutes, and had to kept awake or Windows could loose it by writing to it every 5 minutes, even with a SSD drive, seems to have been the culprit. I also have an ORICO 2595US3 with a HDD in it that does the same thing but wakes up after a couple of seconds and works OK connected to a Netgear R7000 as NAS. Changed the 2588 to a Tek-Republic TUE-300, which indicates it has powered down after 5 minutes, but apparently wakes up instantly on demand and gives Windows no grief.

I am having the exact same problem with my ORICO 2588US3, when left inactive, the drive goes to sleep and when trying to access it later, it freezes and you have to unplug/re-plug it.
My question is, Which enclosure shall I buy that does not suffer from this flaw ?

Unplugging/Re-plugging can damage/corrupt data ?
