My Toshiba laptop is giving me a "S.M.A.R.T." warning that its hard drive may be failing. The unit is out of warranty, of course. I purchased a replacement hard drive. My plan is to attach the new drive externally, clone the possibly-failing drive to the new drive, then install the new drive into the laptop.
I have the new drive installed in a NexStar TX external drive housing. However, the instructions are rather sparse, and don't tell me how to attach the drive to the system. The connector is a USB "Y" cable. Do I attach both arms of the Y to USB ports on the laptop, or only one of them?
