I have an internal hard drive i'm going to replace. I would like to use the replaced internal hard drive as an external hard drive that I could take to work and bring home. However, I would like to keep all the data on it without putting it on the new hard drive. When I buy an external enclosure will I have to reformat the replaced internal hard drive or is it just plug in the necessary cables and i'm ready to go. Also, lets say I have adobe photoshop cs2 on the replaced hard drive. Will I be able to open it on a computer at work that doesn't have it? Thanks for the info.

Just pop your drive in the enclose and it will mount without any problems.
As for the apps: You can either boot the installed system from the internal drive (by holding option/alt at startup) or you probably can start up the apps you have saved there as well.
