i had a laptop that i do not use anymore so i took the hard dirive out of it and put it in an external enclosure. i connected to my computer that i use now and it says that it is not formatted and asks me to format it, but i know that formatting it will remove all of the files off of it and i need them. is there anyway to get the files off then format it or is there a way to make windos stop saying that it is not formatted?

Make a disk image using an external USB to Sata adapter and get your files off that drive!
