UPDATE: It was the enclosure indeed. I bought the NexStar CX USB 3.0 2.5 "External enclosure from Crucial and it works perfectly fine. I am gettings speeds close to what was advertised.

Thanks for an update! It seems that Spathi may be right and maybe the enclosure chipset is important. Well, more important that I thought before

I purchased the MX300 as a replacement for the internal HDD on my Dell Studio laptop. I made a mirror image of the drive with Windows 10 as the operating system. I see it lock up within minutes with 100% disk use in the Task Manager but no data activity going to or from the drive. Microsoft defined an issue and supposedly fix, but it has not worked for me. I have also tried 8-10 other suggestions from various online resources and nothing has worked. I disabled Norton and used Defender but that did not work. Disabling "all" virus programs does not make sense in the real world as a fix so I did not try that. One article from Dec 2016 says MS is aware of the problem and working on a fix, but it seems to be a difficult problem to solve. I just had several Windows 10 updates now in April 2017 and they do not fix it either.
I switched back to my HDD 500GB and still see a high activity disk use (sometimes 100%) but it does eventually go away and everything works. The SDD actually locks up and nothing outside of a power down reset will get it back to working. But for me it locks up once again in 5 or less minutes now. I was going to try one more suggested changed but could not get it completed before the disk locked up once again. For now I'm running with the HDD. I am waiting on you Microsoft.................

You said you made an image of it...
Did you use Acronis? If so - did you uninstall it afterwards? You need to. It will cause some systems to lock up.
