hey, i need help on what cables i may need to transfer data from SATA 3GBS hardrive which is no longer in the laptop to my laptop which was installed with a new hardrive and i want to recover my files please help me!
Assuming the new hard drive in the laptop has a Windows operating system installed and working USB ports ...
You would need a USB to SATA adapter with cable that matches the SATA connector on the old drive. If you plan to keep using the old drive as an external drive you could get a USB to SATA adapter that includes a suitable enclosure.
