Ok so my AIO went down. Im trying to save my files off of the hard drive. I dont have another desktop to install it in to do this. I only have my laptop. So i put the internal HD into a external HD case. When turning it on it said the HD could be corrupt. Well I wouldnt understand how. Anyway, so I tried to boot from the USB which didnt work. Said that an OS couldnt be located. I even took the HDD out of the laptop so the HDD in the USB was the only drive and still nothing. Ok So are the cases for the external HDD the same as a ide/sata adapter? Any help would be appreciated.
