I’m just wondering. Its out of warranty. I have a sata to usb device but I’m pretty sure the hard drive logic board is fucked and am getting a cheaper windows lap top. Do I have to go to a data recover place and pay them tons of money? A big issue was I previously factory reset the computer but lost a video and I was planning on paying for recovery software to get the data back. If I can use the sata to usb on my new laptop can you do recovery programs for an external hard drive? I’ve never tried any of this before and wanted to know before I pay tons of money for recovery software.
