Retrieving Pics from dropped laptop.

Hi all, my daughter has dropped her laptop. Sony Viao, O/S Vista and can't access her pictures on Picassa. There are probably other things she can't access but her pictures are of her two children and she doesn't have a back up copy. Someone suggested taking the H/D out and connecting to her new laptop with a cable. Can anyone give me more information so I can help her to retrieve them? Many thanks in advance because I know you always come up trumps.

Yes if the laptop HDD wasn't damaged during the drop then you can open and retrieve the files.

Exactly - I do it all the time in similar situations. It does, of course, rely on the HDD being serviceable.

Thanks Lads. Will give it a go later in the week when daughter gets the cable.

Sorry, can't see the button to click this is resolved. Can anyone help? It says it is at the end of the thread but I can't see it. What does it look like?

Forget that last post. I've found it, the tick on the right. I do miss that simple box we used to have. LOL!
