the cheapest one will work

and if you have a spare harddrive laying around, you can always use it as an external harddrive for backup

That quick?

Open the computer that is not working. Grab a phillip screwdriver, remove the 80-pin flat ribbon from the drive, then remove the 4-pin power connector then remove the 4 retaining screws,

Slip the drive out.

Insert it in the enclosure. (you need not close it)

Turn the power switch on the enclosure or case (or plug it in if no power switch)

Wait until the drive spins up, then connect the usb cord on the case to the pc's usb cord

Windows will detect the drive in a moment....

You can then copy the files over to your pc....what files are you looking for?
