Question about Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet PC
My desk top will not boot. Can I connect my desk top to my notebook so I can copy the data from my hard dirve to the note book or burn onto DVDs?
I hear you could set it up as a slave drive?
My notebook is IBM thinkpad X61
The easiest way to do that is to purchase an external enclosure for your type of desktop hard drive. They come with usb, firewire or both types of connections. It is a simple matter to remove the hard drive from the desktop and install in the enclosure. Plug it in and connect to your notebook. The enclosure will be seen as another hard drive and you can then copy what you need from the desktop hard drive to the notebook. Once on the notebook you can burn to dvd's if you like. This will not work for copying programs. They may still work, navigate to the program folder on the hard drive, find the application folder, open it and find the starting icon, right click on it and send to desktop.
All this is moot if the drive itself is too damaged to spin.
