I believe this is the right forum, if not, I apologize

My old laptop had a motherboard problem and I am trying to take the hard drive from my old computer and bring those files to my new computer. I bought a hard drive enclosure and was told I would be able to do it using this.

This is the old hard drive:

This is the hard drive enclosure I bought:

This is the computer I am trying to put the old files on:

I'm not savvy enough to understand how to properly hook this up. What I need is someone to simply explain how to properly hook up the old hard drive to the hard drive enclosure. Can anyone please help?

The current laptop is running Windows Vista Home Premium.

Thank you

Hi :thumbsup:.

No directions with this enclosure? I see "user manual" in the included items, that should explain it.

You attach the hard drive from your laptop (which is 2.5 inches wide) to the 2.5-inch adapter included.

You attach the other end of the enclosure (with the USB plug) to any USB port which you have available on the desktop.

The drive will then show up under My Computer/Explorer on the desktop.
