Hello,
My old pc seems to have given up the ghost. It has some files I am wanting to keep. Is there a way I can remove the hard drive from the pc and connect it to my laptop. The pc is HP Pavillion 700 using XP, my laptop is Advent using vista.

Thanks for the rapid response, done my research and purchased a new enclosure and should have a portable storage system in a couple of days time.

Cheers
