Retreiving data from broken computer


Novice Member
Basically my friends Acer laptop died yesterday and he is hoping to recover the data from the hard drive. Is the process as easy as as buying a card drive caddy and plugging it in via USB, or would some sort of specialised software be needed?

Thanks in advance.

The advantage with what I suggested over a caddy is that it isnt tied to a specific interface as you can use it on laptop/desktop sata or IDE.
