You can get an external USB enclosure for the HDD in the Toshiba. Install the drive into the enclosure and plug it into a usb port and pull any files you need off the drive.

You may also need to take ownership of the drive from the security tab on the drive's(or even a single file or folder) properties in my computer.

You only need to do this is you get a access denied or permission issue message.
