I bought a Sandisk Conversion Kit to convert both my PC and laptop to SSD. I now have a further use for the software and cables that came with the kit and would appreciate advice on how best to tackle it, assuming it’s even possible.
I have a Windows XP laptop (standard HDD drive) with technical software on it and need a back up in case this quite old machine fails, as some of the software will not upgrade to W7 or higher. I’ve bought an identical XP-powered laptop, also with a standard HDD drive. Is it feasible to clone the existing laptop on to the new machine’s HDD using the USB-to-SATA Wire cable supplied with the kit? My main concern is whether the cable will enable powering up the new laptop’s HDD if I remove it for that operation.
