My friend's Quicksilver with Tiger just went bad so he ordered a new iMac (15 days to get here). In the meantime can I take out his hard drive from the Quicksilver--put it in an external hard drive enclosure connect it to my work Windows 7 laptop and be able to copy the files to it. He doesn't have a lot of data. Nothing wrong with his hard drive. I am excited for him and his new iMac!!!
