any advice please?
my freind has a non windows booting pc which after a few attempts to repair has given up and decided to buy a new computer(more money than sense!)
she has some important files she wants to retreive from the old hard drive which is a 300gig s-ata, any cheap ways to access the files?

the usb enclosures for s-ata drives seem few and far between but seems to be her only solution.
please bear in mind that windows is corrupt and she cant boot the drive.

thanks

Plug it into the new computer, there is bound to be a spare sata port.

so it is a simple as that
thats the answer i was hoping to hear thank you!
