Recover data from old laptop hard drive


I broke my old laptop screen and now have a new laptop as well as an old desktop. I have taken the old laptop hard drive out so i am now looking to see how i go about recovering the data. I don't want to fiddle with my new laptop, but maybe its easier than if i opted for the desktop route. My new laptop has two hard drives and apparently its easy to take out to replace, but somehow i doubt its as easy as slotting it in and using it as you would an external hard drive.

  1. I would go with a sata to usb adapter (assuming the drive is sata) which cost $15 and are very easy to use to data transfers.

    Here is one example,

    There are lots of different ones. You could also get an external enclosure for the drive if you wanted to use it as portable storage.
  2. Or use a usb sata dock. It fits both 3.5" and 2.5" drives and makes it easy to swap drives.
