    I have a laptop that has malware that won't let me boot up.

    I have taken the hard drive out and have connected to a desktop using a sata to usb converter.

    I can see the hard drive in my computer, but when I try to access the laptop hard drive a window pops up asking if I want to format it.

    I have tried this using another laptop as well with the same results.

    The desktop and laptop use NTFS formatting that I am using to access the malware hard drive.

    The malware hard drive came from a Dell Latitude E6320.

    I have most of the malware hard drive backed up exept for the last couple of weeks. I want to back up that portion before working on it.

    Any ideas?
