Now assuming the hard drive is still intact, what would be the best way to get data from it. I've taken the casing off the bottom of the laptop to reveal the hard drive. There is a small plug of some sort coming out of it (i've included a pic), can anyone tell me what this is? and can it be used for data transfer, e.g. some sort of adapter cable that plugs into this and connects to another PC? I believe the hard drive is Serial ATA and as ive built my own computer i have SATA cables lying around, if i remove the hard drive from the laptop would i be able to connect it to my computer with a standard SATA cable or is the connectivity different for laptops?
Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
