    Somehow my laptop HDD has a few issues that require a format. Unfortuantely it will not boot any longer sinced the registry is corrupt....yeah, I know I should back that sort of thing up. Now I need some data saved off of the HDD.

    Where can I find an external USB enclosure that will allow me to read data off of the notebook HDD from my desktop? Google hates me today, I can't find anything that looks like what I need. Or do they not make something like this??

    most local computer stores (read ... NOT best buy or other chains) should have those.
