3.5 External Harddrive Enclosure: formatting?
Posted on 2005-05-16
Hi guys, i've recently had a problem with my desktop and i want to take out one out of the two harddrives from it, and place it in an external harddrive enclosure and connect it to my laptop.
the harddrive i want to remove from my desktop does not have any operating systems on it. I used it for backup and there's all kinds of media files on it.
The external harddrive case im looking at is hot swappable and plug and play. If I buy the external harddrive case, will i have to FORMAT the harddrive before using it??
that is something i definitely do not want to do.
thank you for any advice
