Default Laptop Hard Drive?

I have a laptop that has a good hard drive and it has alot of pictures and info that I would like to get off of it. I ordered a adapter to turn this into a external sata drive.

Will I have acess to all of the programs and the pictures on this harddrive. Thanks

It depends where they are on the harddrive and if you set your user's folders private.

If the computer you connect it to supports booting from USB. (Assuming the external adapter you purchased is USB) Easiest way to check this is to check the boot priority of your BIOS. Most BIOS will give you a button to push when the computer starts up that allows you to choose your preferred boot device.
