Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
Hi, Different people tel me different things I have never done this before so please can anyone help clear this up!
I have to do a recovery on my laptop and have not previously backed up my data and need several files off of it.
I have been told I need some sort of adapter cable to plug the laptops internal hard drive to my other computer to retrieve the data.
what adapter do i need and will it def work??
Your best option would be to pick up an Apricorn DriveWire universal drive adapter. This way, it doesn't matter what kind of drive you want to attach to your USB port since it will take laptop and desktop IDE and SATA drives. It runs between $30-$40 and is available through CDW and Dell. You may be able to find it at other locations as well.

I think they are talking about a USB Flash drive, you plug it into the USB port and the computer sees it as a storage/removable device and you can get one up to 16 GB.
Depending on how much data you need to back up depends what media to use because you have the option of DVD's too.
Backing up to a flash drive is an excellent way of backing data up so i would seriously consider that option because it definitely works.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
