Hey everyone I have a question it's something technical.

Say I have a computer that won't start because for some reason windows is corrupted or something.

If the Hard Drive is SATA is there any type of connection that I can buy, and then connect it to my other computer and retrieve the files as it were an external Hard Drive something like SATA to USB cable or SATA to eSATA?

Thanks any help would be great.

So this should work if I want to retrieve files from the Hard Drive before doing clean install to fix the Hard Drive?

This http://www.newegg.co...9-152-_-Product appears to be more reliable than the earlier suggestion, reading the feedback at Newegg should help you decide if it is right for you.
