I need to be able to create a copy or backup of a hard drive that I have connected via USB -> SATA. The hard drive is from a MacBook Pro and it appears to be fully encrypted (disk management says the drive is empty) although I could be wrong.
Before sending the laptop back to Apple I wanted to back the data up in case they wipe it. How do I do this as I cannot assign a drive letter to it without formatting it or converting it?
The problem with the laptop is that it refuses to turn on when the power button is pressed. I tried resetting the SMC to no avail and I cannot seem to get the battery out of the laptop because the of the screw driver that is required (3 points like shaped like a Y) which I do not have. So I am going to back up the data before sending it back to Apple.
