    Thanks, would that be the only option? See, i wanted to know the cheapest option available.
    This is my HDD, do i have to remove its case or anything?

    . Could you please tell me how the HDD box will work? Is it same as a sata to usb converter? How to put the HDD in the box? It would be really helpful if you can give me a link. Thank you
