Is it possible to swap a hard drive from a machine with a damaged screen to an undamaged one?I was using the damaged one through a monitor but it's decided to stop working so that there is no image on the monitor so rather than lose all my files I wanted to transfer them all through the working laptop to my memory stick and then put the original bigger hard drive back in and reload all the files.

Why not get a usb case, install the hard drive and get your files. then use it as external storage.
