I'm trying to recover some files from my old computer. It's a Compaq Presario CQ5600F desktop. It's said there are several different external USB drive enclosure's that are supported, mainly SATA, SATA II, SATA III or, IDE. I don't know which one my type of computer uses and I don't want to take it apart yet because I don't want to leave the hard drive out. I know I could just put it back in but I'm a very "in the moment" type of person. I don't want to buy the wrong external USB drive enclosure unless I know which one I need.
I could also use tips on how to do this with as little hassle as possible.
