How to use a Hard Drive Adapter
If I use a hard drive adapter as suggested, such as this one: "Newer Technology Universal Drive Adapter - connects ATA/IDE/SATA to USB2 - 2.5", 3.5", 5.25" Drives", do I still need an enclosure?
I need to retrieve data from a computer that won't boot up due to a bad board. Can I do this using only the adapter and connecting it directly to the computer leaving the hard drive in the computer, OR, do I need to remove the HD, put it in the enclosure and then connect the adapter to the enclosure?
In summary, my mission is to get the data off the Macbook HD of the computer that won't boot up and transfer it to a new Macbook.
Will this scenario allow me to accomplish this, or is there another way to best do it?
Thanks very much!!
Is this a good question?
