My girlfriend's Panasonic Toughbook's (laptop) internal hard drive up and failed out of nowhere today. She doesn't back up, so all her music, documents, etc.. is on that drive.
Is there a way to hook up her HD to my PowerBook (just as an external HD) in an attempt to salvage any data possible? We are more interested in getting the data than any other thing caz it also include some important company data in which works
Assuming I can get the HD out of her laptop, how would I go about hooking it up to my PowerBook as an external drive (I have a 200GB LaCie FW HD, so maybe I could just swap about the drives?) If it successfully mounted on my desktop, would I be able to just drag and drop files from her HD to my HD? I realize the disk needs to spin on both HD's for this to work, so I have my doubts, but I've gotta try something
or maybe there is an easier way?
