My Thinkpad A22m just died recently. I have read some discussions on
how it might be revived, but I'm not crossing my fingers. Since it's
old, i'm not too concerned about the computer, but i never backed up my
data except for 2 years ago... (i know it's horrible). Anyways, it's
not a hard drive problem- it's that the computer won't turn on.
My question is, is there a way of connecting to the hard drive
externally and plugging it into another computer so I can back up this
hard drive onto the other computer's hard drive? I think there are
kits but I'm not sure which to use and exactly how to install/implement
them. Please be specific cuz I'm in no way an expert in computer
Thanks so much!
Re: Recovering data from dead Thinkpad- Connect hard drive externally to another computer?
Pick up a laptop HD external USB enclosure (widely available for around
$10), install the HD from your A22m in it and connect it to any computer
with a USB connection. It will be seen as another HD and you can copy
whatever you need from it to a HD, CD, DVD, etc.
