Now this is a nifty tool for a computer tech. This little thingy connects to a SATA or IDE/ATA harddrive, and makes it available via USB. Simple as that. Harddrive connected to the SATA port at the top there, and on the right are cables for external power (big plug) and USB (smaller plug). The lump hanging on the power cable is the on/off switch for the power, in case you wondered.
Now that the old harddrive is hooked up, it's time to copy over my old files.
