How do I delete the OS on an old hard drive without deleting the data on it?
I have a somewhat oldish IDE drive that was in my old laptop before it died, the hard drive is fine, the power port went out on the computer and I recycled the computer, but I kept the hard drive. It still has XP installed on it and I want to get the files in it. If I just plugged it into a USB adapter can I just drag them off? Or is there something more complicated?
