I have a MAC G5 that will not boot and the user would like to get all the user files recovered from this drive.
If the drive is not physically bad I would like to connect the hard drive up to a USB to SATA harneess that I use all the time when I recover Windows based hard drives that will not boot etc..
My question is:
I assume I would want to connect this USB to SATA hard drive to another MAC OS X system (I could have access to 10.4 (Tiger) and possibly 10.5 Leopard systems. Once I do this, how would I go about finding the files and copying them. Can I see the hard drive attached via USB to SATA cable like I do in my Windows recovery work I do? Where would I go to view the hard drives files etc.. Can I just copy the files to local MAC (then burn to DVD).
I have done a bit of work on MACs (Leopard to Snow Leopard updates, RAM updgrades etc. but do mostly Windows work in past).
Also, do you know if I were to connect a MAC G5's system hard drive to a windows 7 (XP or Vista System) with a SATA to USB adaptor is there a way to recover files? I assume I have to conect to MAC system as desribed above but I am not sure...
