Can I connect an old hard drive to a new Vista machine?
I've got a quick question. Can I take the hard drive from my old machine,
which was running windows 2000, and use it as an external drive on my new
Vista machine?
Thanks for any help you can provide,
Dan

Given that you have an external HDD enclosure, such as an Adaptec 2.5 model
SCA-120, it certainly will.
