    Aren't you asking us to confirm what type of plug is on your external hard drive housing without telling us what model it is?

    Yes, you can buy a cable with USB-c on one end, and USB-a on the other, and use it with the MBP.

    Should be no issues at all.

    The USB-C enclosures I have purchased have come with both cables (-A and -C), so no additional cable purchase necessary.

    As mentioned, there are many USB-C cables available to convert existing enclosures if you are careful about which connector style is on your enclosure.
