I had a toshiba m505-s4940 with a hitachi 320 GB sata hdd for about 3 years and then it failed to boot. I was able to boot it using a hirens cd and i don't know much about computers so I just bought a new laptop. I bought an enclosure and was able to recover most of the files using recuva. I was wondering if I re-formatted the hdd if it would be reliable enough to use as an external hardrive
