I have a external hook up I use to rescue personal files off of hard drives that are infected with viruses so bad they won't start or aren't usable if they do.
I have never got a virus rescuing folders/files off of a drive hooked up as a external.
Keep in mind that the operating system on the infected drive isn't running when you use it as an external.
If you were to hook it up as an external, open My Computer, right click on the drive & click format, then do the format , everything on the drive would be gone .
