    Can I retrieve data from old computer Hard Drive?


    My older laptop can not start therefore I thought by using News laptop with Windows 10 if, I can retrieve data from older Hard Drive?
    Before doing that I want to ask:
    1. Is it safe to retrieve data from old computer Hard Drive?
    2. To use older Hard Drive I got to buy Hard Drive Case with USB/AC adopter(if required)?
    and is it ATA or SATA , 2.5 inch. You can refer Hard Drive image and guide me.

    Thank you in advance.

    :)

    new system old hard drive...

    I have an old hard drive that has those old ribbon connections to transfer data to the mother board.

    I have a new computer that mostly uses those cool little ATA (I think that is what they are called) connections.

    The new computer has a Vista OS.

    I opened up the case and I was supprised to see on the motherboard a wide ribbon connection and so I connected the old hard drive and a free power connection.

    When I turned on the computer, the system started up like usual and did not notice the new hard drive.

    I went to the Control Pannel and did an automatic add hard drive call and it did not find the old hard drive.

    Any suggestions?
