    Need to dump a hard drive.

    Ok, I have a Toshiba Satellite m105-s3031 and I need to get all of the contents off of the drive and onto a new computer. How do I go about doing this? (I have no prior experience so please explain from the most basic level possible) Thanks.

    This USB to IDE&SATA adapter

    or one like it since yours is a laptop too.
    more choices

    advantage of that is you can use a SATA or IDE harddrive for backup too.
