I own a 1.5TB Seagate Barracuda LP External HDD, and have removed the enclosure down to the base harddrive. The enclosure failed during my tour in Iraq and I have roughly 800-900 Gb of data stored on this drive. I am wondering, how would I remove the data from the HDD?

As I stated Before, I have removed the Enclosure, as it was the main reasoning behind the HDD not powering on, and I have researched SATA cables to no avail. I am unsure what I am looking for as far as SATA cables, or if I am even looking in the right direction.

First, thank you for your service and welcome back to "the world". :thumbsup:

Second, :welcome:

I have researched SATA cables to no avail.

You have several options here.

  • Temporarily install this drive into a PC as a secondary drive (not boot drive), then copy off your data.
  • Install this drive into a new "bare" (no drive) enclosure such as one of these then connect it to a USB port on your notebook and copy over.
  • Use a docking station - I have one of these and really like it.
  • Use a cable adapter kit which provides power and a data connection.
