Hi,

I have a load of information on a disk drive that was for my old machine where the motherboard was IDE. Since I got a new machine it only supports SATA.

What is the best way I can connect an IDE drive to SATA?

Or would it be a better option to just buy an external drive?

Thanks for the advice.
