External hard-drive question

Most laptop HDDs are 2.5" rather than the 3.5" units found in desktop PCs. You should be able to remove and install the drives in 'caddys' without a lot of bother but first, especially if the laptops are very old, check the drives are SATA rather than the older PATA types - the connections are different. You could also use a dock if it proves to be more convenient.
