Some days ago my sister had a problem with her laptop. It crashed while she was working on a document on it. Nothing helped to bring it alive again.
So we decided to rescue all data from her harddisk on an external device. I used a small tool called „SATA Adapter“ which I bought some years ago to rescure the data.
The one I’m using could be found here.
How to do it:
- Shut down the computer (if it isn’t already off) and pull out the power cable
- Remove all screws from the computer and dismount the hard disk
- Connect the hard disk with the sata adapter to another computer
- The device should show up like a „normal“ external device
- Backup all the data
That is how it looks like:
