Okay, I’ve looked everywhere in the forums here and have done research on google, but I’m just not sure if I should consider other peoples answers to questions that are not 100% similar to my situation.
I have a Dell Inspiron 17R (7720). I used to have an HP Pavilion dv9700 cto (finally got fried). I want to take the HDD from my HP and put in my Dell so I can recover files that I did not have stored in my external HDD. I know a little bit when it comes to this, but I will say I don’t hold myself confident enough to just jump right in. I’ve heard about having one HDD as a slave, but I don’t have what I need to do that. I’m also not sure if the slave is necessary since the HDD I’m putting in already has an OS and isn’t being used while the original would be.
So on my dell I have a HDD and a SSDR mSATA card (I don’t know what the R stands for either, can’t find anything out about that as well), and yes I have a second HDD bay.
Any help would be great.
