Can I connect SATA harddrive to my laptop through USB port

HP G71 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have 160 GB SATA harddrive in my PC, but my PC is not working.

 

I want to copy my SATA hard drive data to my laptop.

 

Is it possible to connect my pc hard drive to a laptop via USB?

Hello @Lucinda952 

 

Yes you can. You will need a Sata to USB adapter. If the Sata HDD is the smaller 2.5 inch (100mm) drive, you can use a non powered adapter. If the HDD is the larger 3.5 inch (147mm) type, you will need a powered adapter.
