Hi hamluis, This is not a store bought pc...custom built by Technology Partners, Inc.... (but still cheap...not that the ex would agree, but ...) And being almost 4 yrs old I can't find anything on there web site (No. wise) that matchs up with her sales invoice....
I would simply remove the hard drive...and attach it directly to the motherboard of a different system, as a secondary/tertiary drive. This results in that hard drive being treated as something other than a boot drive and all data files on the drive will then be moveable to a partition/drive on the second system.
Or you can use a USB enclosure/converter cables to connect the drive via USB.
There are other ways, but you get the picture.
No I really don't.....lol.... I'm not trying to be funny or anything, I just don't know that much about the working and what nots of pc's.... From the web site where she got this one built, I think I now have a good idea of what the hard drive at least looks like... So I'll tear open her pc case later and see what I can find out... So anything you'd care to explain I appreciate ! By that I mean how to get the CD of program I need to download to run on her pc , etc.....Thanks again !
P.S. Since you seem to be saying I'll need to replace the hard drive in her old pc, couldn't I just replace her old hard drive, then hook up her old hard drive the way you were talking about to her new one to get the info (files) that way...... LOL Sounds like whos on first ...... Larurel & Hardy
