How to copy hard disk from IBM thinkpad X41

#1 Post by arik1 » Tue Nov 25, 2014 6:24 am

I need to backup an old computer that do not work.
I tried to take out the hard disk and pass it to a newer stationary computer but I can not connect it because it don't connect normal IDE or SATA.
What can id do?

The X41 hard drive has the same connector as a standard 2.5" IDE drive.
To connect this drive e.g. via USB to another machine, you'd need a universal hard drive adapter, such as made by Apricorn or Newertech.
