Default HDD question

Alright I just built my new comp and stuff, but I never formatted my old HDD, I still have it around. I was wondering, I need to get some stuff out of it that I forgot, but I can't use it on my comp, is it possible to connect it to another computer, no matter what processor and get the info out?

Default Re: HDD question

Yes. You can hook it up to any computer and get your old info off. Although, your best bet is to buy an external enclosure for it (Whether SATA or IDE) and just hook it up to your new one through USB or E-SATA. That way you can just browse the old hard drive and pick and choose and easily and instantiously transfer the files you need/want too.
