I have an old laptop that cannot turn on anymore. I was wondering if I take out the hard drive, will i be able to plug it in to my new laptop with an adapter to access my files? Another question I have is, lets say that I had files that were on my desktop in the old laptop, will i still be able to access that too? Thank you!
Okay that is really good to know thank you! But do you know if I'll still be able to access my data that were on my desktop in my old laptop?
Yes you can, I have an adapter that works with IDE and SATA desktop drives, they are more expensive than the 2.5 inch laptop drive enclosure, about 3 times as much. They need to use external power source which you would plug into you wall outlet, it all comes in the kit. It costs about $30.00 where I live but maybe cheaper where you live.
Okay thank you for all the help, I finally managed to hook up my hard drive and I access to most files but I have another issue right now, I need to access my files from my old desktop but when I click "users/(myname)" it keeps saying access denied because I don't have ownership. Does anyone know a work around?
