Hi, My desktop dies after 6 years and I want to transfer data from old hard drive to new laptop. What do I need to buy. What is the cable called and can I use and buy a enclosure.

Thanks for any help in advance

You can get a USB enclosure that would do the job. It all depends on the type of drive you have as to what enclosure you would need. You need to get the enclosure depending on what connector your drive used in the desktop so that would be IDE or SATA. Find that out before you get one.
