    Default Help. Broken laptop screen. Didn't back up files.

    Ok so I have an older laptop and a newer laptop recently gifted it to me. Instead of immediately transferring all my files on the older one to an external HD or on to the newer laptop, I waited...I'm dumb...and last night, I my older laptop fell and the screen cracked so its all broken, and cracked and stuff....ANYWAYS...

    What is my best option for retrieving all my music/photos/random documents?
    (cost effectiveness is an issue)

    I was thinking something along the lines of buying an external monitor, or getting that external enclosure thing....ideas?

    Alternately you could always pull the hard drive out and buy an external case for it and browse through it on another machine.

    Really simple. Cut the person some slack, he's just freaking the FUCK OUT! Hahaha.


    Gut your laptop open and get your HDD (Hard Drive), head to Fry's and get a HDD hub which is something that connects your HDD to a power source, and USB to your newer laptop.

    ^You basically made your internal HDD into an external HDD.

    Check this out on Amazon.com. This is all you need. http://www.amazon.com/USB-2-0-SATA-C...0921835&sr=8-2

    Hah. Thanks for the help (and for the other types of comments), but yeah I pretty much to my HDD out and went to go look for an external enclosure, hub, and or anything...but since this is a fucking island...it is only available at Best Buy which was conveniently sold out of that stuff and wont be available for another two weeks.

    WHICH is where ordering online comes in.

    Thanks for all the help, though
