I have a Segate 2.5" external drive (6Gb/s) and an enclosure that is for 3Gb/s or 1.5 Gb/s.

Can I install the 6Gb/s drive in the 3.5 or 1.5 Gb/s enclosure?

Thanks

I don't see why not, the case hardware will limit the HD in datarate transfer, but it should work. Unless the power requirement is not high enough.
