    Hey guys, for certain reasons my PC won't turn on and will probably need to be replaced. Anyway, I was wondering if I could connect my main andauxiliary internal hard drives into another PC like some sort of huge USB. I got files there that I wanna save cuz redownloading them will take forever.

    You can remove the drive(s), and install into another computer internally, or externally via a USB adapter, or using an external enclosure. No big deal.
