question regarding a HDD transfer

I destroyed my old laptop about a year ago and since then have aquired a new one and i pulled the HDD out of the bad laptop and im wondering how i would go about pulling the files out of that and putting them on my new computer.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Pop it into one of these and that should let you plug a USB cable in and get the files off easily

Quote the post and copy/paste the url. I think it's pbn's link checker thing that's breaking it.

I just used one of these

http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-E...ch+usb+to+sata

It's just a Startech USB to SATA dock. Plugin the USB plugs into your new desktop/laptop, as long as your old HDD is SATA plug that into the dock. Mounts it like a USB drive.

I've used it for file transfer (HDD gone bad so I was pulling what I could onto the new one) and also used ACRONIS TRU IMAGE to clone a smaller drive into a bigger one as well when I upgraded.

Cheap and works for what I needed it for.

This.

There are also other cheap SATA to USB adapters out there, but that one will definitely do the trick.

I feel like just about anyone with a PC should have one of these. I have 2, one for older IDE/ATA drives with external power and a USB 3.0 to SATA3 for newer drives.
