I have seagate ST9750420AS , 750 gb 7200rpm, 16mb cache which is dying. So I have replaced it with 1tb hybrid of seagate.

But the problem is that, I want to take data from old HDD, and I have 5400 rpm, usb 2.0 Hard disk enclosure.

will my 7200 rpm hdd will work in 5400 rpm enclosure??

It should, although some enclosures are designed to only draw enough power via USB for 5400rpm drives.

It will be a case of try and see.
