    Hello again

    A quick question for anyone with some time and thoughts to spare.

    I had a 2010 Pro which was damaged after spilling a glass of wine over it.

    It is now with an insurance company that replaced it but they have offered a flat fee of £35 to have the hard drive removed and sent to me.

    This hard drive has all my old pictures, music and files on and I would love to be able to get them back.

    However, it is only worth it if I can actually access the hard drive.

    How simple would it be for me to connect this hard drive to my new air? Would I need to power it and how would I link it?

    I appreciate anyones time and help with this.

    Thank you in advanced

    William

    Buy a 2.5" external enclosure and it will plug in via USB.
