External hard drive for MacBook pro question:
- Member Since
- Sep 20, 2013
I have a MacBook pro that I purchased earlier this year that my toddler accidentally drowned last week. Took it to a shop and they said the logic board is fried, which was no surprise. They said the hard drive is okay and I can get an external drive to access all my files. I don't really know anything about external drives so I am unsure what type I need to purchase. I also do not have another computer at the moment, but was wondering if it would be possible to transfer my photos from the external hard drive to a flash drive just in case the hard drive fails at some point.
Can someone please explain to me how all this stuff works and what I need to get?
Thanks in advance.

- Remove the hard drive from the MacBook Pro.
- Install it into an external hard drive housing (this is now an external hard drive).
- Then plug this external hard drive into a 2nd Mac computer to access the files
Example of an external hard drive housing/enclosure:
USB 2.0 Bus Powered Portable Enclosure Serial-ATA 2.5" NoteBook Hard Drive Solution
