One Minute Tech - Episode 7 : Renewed Hard Drives

Description

Most of us have owned an old laptop that might have died suddenly or unexpectedly. Ever wondered if you could recover old files or better yet, breathe new life into your still functioning hard drive? In today’s Episode, I will be demonstrating how to turn an Internal Hard Drive into an External Hard Drive (or Back-Up Drive). It is actually much easier than you may think and obtaining the parts & tools are dirt cheap compared to getting it repaired at a store. From my experience, it has saved me lots of time and money just by converting old Hard Drives into back-up drives. Some of the drives that you will see in the video are over 15 years old and are still working strong on holding certain data or files. This is thanks to not working at a high pace when inside the computer as the main C Drive and is only powered on when needed, thus expanding its life cycle. Keep in mind that Mechanical Hard Drives are much more sensitive compared to a Solid State Drive due to having working mechanical parts, and it is recommended to get a bumper or case to avoid damage or loss of data. This method also works with any SSD’s as well.
