My computer just died and won't boot, and before I put it to be repaired I want to back up my data onto my brother's computer by putting my hard drive in his computer as a second drive.My drive contains everything from my old computer (windows, installations and music etc.)
However his PC has a RAID set up and I don't know if it will work. Is it possible to add another hard drive as a second drive to a computer with a RAID set up?
I don't plan to boot to this drive or anything, I just want to copy over some of my files so I don't lose them. Is this even possible if the drive has windows installed?
Also, the drive has no jumper on it. It is a SATA Seagate Barracuda 160GB, and I researched this on the internet and it said that the drive will configure itself automatically. Is this true?
