      Answer

      USB 3.0. However, USB 3.0 will plug into a USB 2.0 port and will work just fine. They are backward compatible it will just operate at USB 2.0 speeds when plugged into USB 2.0 port on your computer.

          Yes it will, but the programs you transfer will not work. They need to be installed on your new machine. Your files will be fine and work.

            No. There might be an adapter that would allow this, but out of the box it's SATA only

              Answer

              This only works with SATA hard drives. SATA I,II,and III. So any SATA drive will work. Not sure about the new M.2 sata drives, but i would assume those are also backwards compatible. I just purchased this from the store, but it only had the USB 3.0 connection for the PC. Online it says eSATA and USB 3.0. Same SKU and model number. So if you are looking for something with eSATA connection for the PC as well, it looks like the description is incorrect.

              May be a dumb question, but I assume that you simply insert an internal hard drive. Is that correct?   (5 Answers)

                You are correct. The insertion slot accomodates both desktop and laptop sized SATA drives.

              Can I plug a SATA drive removed from an old desktop into this and then connect it to my new desktop via USB or do I need to connect it to my new PC via an SATA cable somehow ? I assumed the former, but someone at best buy told me it's the later.   (7 Answers)

                Yes this is supported with a USB connection. A 3.0 connection works the best but it will also work slower with a 2.0. It also supports 2.5 sata laptop hard drives. Well worth the money.
