recover hard disk data

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?

Yes, assuming it is not password protected

Re: recover hard disk data

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.

Re: recover hard disk data

Thank you luckly there is no password protection and the Sabrent cable which cost me only $15 allowed me recover my T61 hard disk data via a desktop.
