Laptop HD can i use w/ext usb box?

Ok heres the deal im getting a 60g HD for my laptop is a hitachi brand and im getting rid of my 30g thing is im too lazy to go thru the whole drive and create a back of what i need from the old one, so is there a way i can put it in one of those usb boxes and then as i need files hook it up to my laptop and just get the data i need?

yes you can purchase a USB enclosure for notebook drives and just use it as an external hard drive

thanks a lot i will get on it as i receive my new HD today. :slight_smile:
