hi all, i just wanted to find out if it is possible to take a hdd with all the data and connect it up to another machine as the d: drive so i can back all the data up off that drive.

The situaltion is that the system it has come out of the motherboard has blown and has got no display, they need all the information and e-mails of the hdd, is that possible.

many thanks

Yes it's possible. It really doesn't matter if it's the D: or any other drive taht doesn't already exists on the system.

It won't be formatted unless you do it, but you may have to take ownership of the files and folders.
