I'm not really here

I'm backing up pictures to Amazon cloud, which is very cheap (so far free).
I bought an enclosure 'box' for about £4 off Amazon - essentially a little aluminium box, with a rubberised outer layer. It has a circuit board which plugs into the drive, and that then offers a USB connection.....so essentially the internal SATA from the knackered lappy becomes an external drive.
I can use this as a regular backup, while still working out a long term cloud strategy.
Also - more importantly - I've got a lot of family photos back.
