hi kaycee,

yes, Recuva works for all types of hard drives (desktop or laptop) and even usb flash drives.

you will an enclosure for your laptop's hard drive

basically you need to detach the laptop hard drive and insert it into the enclosure. then connect the enclosure's usb cable to a working computer where Recuva is installed.

use Recuva to scan the hard drive inside the enclosure.

again, reminder that if you have found the files that you want to restore, choose a restore location that is NOT on the enclosed hard drive.

***Before purchasing a hard drive enclosure, you need to check if your hard disk is a "IDE" or "SATA" type.

purchase a "2.5 enclosure" that is for the type of your hard drive (IDE or SATA).

hope this helps
