I have an old PC that ran on Win 95. The HDD has data on it that I need access too.

If I remove the HDD and put it into a HDD Enclosuer and then connect it it to my new PC which runs Windows 7. Will I be able to read the disk and copy my files across?

Any suggestions

Yes, as long as you didn't compress the old drive or use any fancy drive overlay software with it which was sometimes done back in those days. Easiest way to find out is to simply try it.

should read it easily. Windows will recognize the older file formats, but won't necessarily like to play with them. May want you to convert older .xls and .doc formats to the newer versions, but I've had zero issues with stuff I've written on a '95 box and still use on my W7 rig.

for that matter, works fine on my ubuntu build as well.
