My laptop recently died, but I got the hard disk out. I put the hard disk in an external case; I connected this disk to my desktop via the usb cable, it worked fine. However, when I later restarted my desktop (after removing my laptop hard disk upon desktop shutdown) my desktop froze at the windows boot screen.

I had to take a backup of my registry and work from their to build the registry and got the windows to run again. Now I fear if I connect my laptop hard disk again, the same thing wil happen to my desktop - it will freeze again at the windows boot up screen.

I have some really important data on my laptop hard disk and it will take many sitings to have it completely reorganized before I empty the laptop hard disk and format it to remove the boot part of the laptop hard disk.

Can you please tell me how should I approach to move my data from my laptop hard disk?
