If the old HDD is still operational, just install a new internal HDD along with the existing HDD, then clone the old drive to the new drive using the new HDD manufacturer's software. If a disc isn't included with the new drive, go to the manufacturer's site & download a copy. Then all you have to do is boot off the disk & perform the cloning.|
