    Hi,
    Recently my macbook hard drive failed. I am not sure as to the reason, but I have read online that in most cases you can recover the data from it easily.

    My brother has a copy of Data Rescue 3 from when his laptop hard drive died about a year ago so I am planning on using that.

    Should I most likely be able to get my data back?

    I am looking to get the "New 2.5" USB 2.0 Aluminum PATA IDE Hard Drive Enclosure" from Ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/New-2-5-USB-2-0...e_Internal&hash=item2eaf734003#ht_2942wt_1488

    Should that work fine?

    It says it works with all: 2.5" 9.5mm IDE laptop hard drive.

    Is that what a macbook hard drive is?

    The macbook is about a year or two old.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    That enclosure will not work. You will need a 2.5" SATA enclosure for your drive.
