I've recently acquired a SATA/IDE/eSATA to USB adapter (lets you use 2.5 and 3.5 hard drives as an external USB drive). I was wondering- would it be a quick/easy/viable way to clean a hard drive if you installed it in the adapter, and used another computer to scan it as a non-system drive? Any tools especially well suited to this (or would any of the tools do this)? Or would it be just as tricky as diagnosing and cleaning a system drive in an operating computer?
EDIT: And if this is not the proper forum for this type question, please, move it to where it belongs!
