recover hard disk data

2016-02-15, 17:36 PM

My T61 is not booting.

 

Can I take out the hard disk and pop it in any HDD and read it from a different computer to recover the data?

Solved! See the solution

Yes, assuming it is not password protected

I just ordered a cable below and expect to receive the delivery in a week. What do I do if the hard disk is password protected?

You would need to put it into a similar thinkpad and clear the password.
