Hi people

Can I install the old hard drive from a desktop computer into an external case, and connect it via USB (or any other connection) to a new computer?.

Thanks
Peter

Shouldn't be a problem.

If it's an old 3.5" IDE drive you can get something like this:

This chart should help you work out what type of connection your hard drive has:
