by on March 26, 2010

Q: My dell latitude C510 laptop computer crashed, and I decided to by an external hard drive so I can transfer my files to my new computer. However, once I received my external hard drive, and removed my hard drive, I do not see how I can connect my hard drive to the external hard drive. The external hard drive case is big enough to fit my hard drive, but I do not see how to connect the two. The external hard drive is an elements, and it came with no significant user manual or disk.

    You won’t be able to hook the two hard drives together and automatically transfer the files.

    You can plug your old laptop hard drive into your computer either internally or with an external hard drive adapter and copy the files over.
