I have an old NEC Versa E3100 laptop. The battery has died and it will cost a few bucks to replace. It's not worth the expense as the HDD is only 60Gb and i have a couple of other replacements, a 500Gb HP and a backup ASUS Netbook. What I would like to do is place the NEC HDD in an external case and use it as a separate drive for the HP.

As the full set of apps are still on the drive, how do I go about removing them (eg, WinXP, etc) and leaving some of the apps and of course, all of the data?

Cheers

If you wanted to access the apps and stuff on that drive, you can use that drive to boot up a virtual machine.
