I have an old Time machine which has seen its last days as I can no longer power it up. I have been meaning to replace it for years so have just ordered a new Dell Dimension 520which I should have this week.
I have most of the data backed up but have 2 hard drives in the old pc which I would like to get some data off and then format. Is there any way that i can do this without having to use the operating system? Its not worth me trying to salvage the machine.
Ideally I would like to house them in my new PC which would be fine and I dont need it to drive the system but just to get the static data. I am not sure whether this type of PC will accomodate them? Apparently there is also a way that I coud take the data off them by connecting to my New PC without having to house them internally.
Can anyone help?
Sorry for the lack of tech speak!!
