Previously I only had a laptop, but since that died and I haven't got round to sending it away to be potentially repaired (motherboard re-balling apparently) I would like to access the files on it, I don't have an external enclosure but the case i have has spaces for 2.5" drives

Anyway if I installed it in my system and since it has the OS from my laptop on it (different versions of w7) will it clash with my current OS and in the event that my laptop is repaired would it still function in it after being put into another system.

Thanks

Just make sure your BIOS is set to boot from the drive with the OS you wish to use normally on and your will be able to browse the 2nd drive after windows loads
