Hey there all. I have an old hard disk drive (Barracuda 7200.7, 200 GB, Model: ST3200822AS, SATA) that came from an older desktop computer which fell victim to badcaps on the motherboard. I didn't really have too much on the HDD, perhaps some family pictures and music, so it wasn't too pressing at that time to find a way to transfer them to our newer computer.
Well, I've been trying to declutter and would now like to get the stuff off of the old HDD. The old computer was running Windows XP (that OS is on the HDD) and my newer desktop is running Windows Vista Home Premium. I have a spare SATA cable and extra power connectors inside the newer tower. What all do I have to do to be able to install the old HDD (just as a secondary drive) and retrieve those old files? Appreciate any and all help. Thanks.
