I'm thinking of purchasing a Hard Drive Converter to recover the Data off my non-bootable hard drive. I was thinking of spending around $20.00, so I am hoping this will this give me what I need to succeed. Would appreciate any thoughts. Thank you!

If the computer does not boot because of a corrupted file then you can do it for free using this rescue disk. You need to attach a USB flash or external drive to the comptuer before booting the disk.


Here is a link on using the recovery disk.

This adapter should be what you're looking for, since you didn't post the drive or type of connection you require.  It will allow you to connect most drives via USB.  A USB adapter will not help if there is a mechanical problem with the drive.
