Hi, I hope you can help me out.  I have a computer (computerA) that is having some booting issues.  I would like to take the SATA drive out of ComputerA and put the drive in ComputerB so I can copy files from the drive.  I haven't worked with SATA at all.  Any Suggestions would be much appreciated.

    >>   that is having some booting issues   <<   what issues?  if you post them, we can help you more precisely.
    in the mean time (providing the disk os ok) you can use darts to run a repair, or recovery on the drive :      

    before doing that, i would test the drive, to be sure it is ok ; download the diag you need from :
