My laptop died recently, so I have begun building a new desktop. I want to save the data on my laptop, and I was told I would be able to get it onto the new hard drive.
The new one is a sata drive, aswell as the laptop drive. How would I go about tranferring my data to my new hard drive? The new one will be basically bare, except for windows 7 and whatever else it needs to make the computer run. Its also a 1TB drive.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
I'd recommend buying an external hard drive enclosure for the laptop drive, removing the old one from the laptop, and putting it in the enclosure. I've always found this to be the most painless method and you'll have another HDD sitting around for backup.
