Have you ever worked with one of these? I was wondering if it would be useful for a really old drive. I have a computer that crashed about 10 years ago and I have never let myself throw out the hard drive in case I could rescue all the family photos off of it (yep, that was before I backed things up to 2 to 3 locations).
Do you think that is too far back to be found/recognized by this device, assuming the drive isn't the part of the computer that died?

The age isn't that important, but the interface is. If it's 10 years old there's a good chance it's a PATA drive rather than a SATA drive. If it is SATA, this will do the job just fine if the drive is accessible. If you're not regularly mounting drives (and not that concerned about speed), pick up one of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000HJ99DI/ which will cover all the bases (SATA and PATA) for $13.

Contrary to another post saying the age isn't important, it could be.

PATA/SATA is one issue, but drives left sitting can form "stiction" which can make it hard to get them going agian. You may have to slap the drive to get it going again.

You may be lucky and not have an issue, but I've experienced it with older drives that sat for a lot less time than 10 years. Be prepared that it may not start right up and don't panic. IF it sticks, you MAY be able to get it going again.

Depending on the size of the drive, it might be worthwhile to spend the extra few bucks and get the USB 3.0 cable instead of 2.0. Smilie
