My wife has (had) a Windows 7 laptop (Toshiba Satellite with SATA HD), and last night one of our dogs jumped on it and completely broke the LCD screen. She needs to get some files off of the hard drive ASAP for a presentation she was putting together. I have an Ubuntu 12.04 desktop, and was told that I might be able to use an external enclosure HD like this one, but not quite sure how.
So I ask:
- Is this enclosure HD the best solution? Why couldn't I use a flash drive?
- How do I use the external enclosure to get data off of her hard drive?
- How do I get the files from the external enclosure device to my Ubuntu machine?
Thanks in advance!
