Pull apart the external drive to reveal the hard drive inside it and then hook it up directly to your motherboard.
Ok so i dont need to worry about it breaking or anything?

The thing is you can still use the hard drive inside the external. It's the USB interface on these things that fails not the hard drive.

This is the first year in about 9 years I can say I have done nothing meaningful on new years eve. I just sat in my room and watched episodes of fringe and 24 that uncle torrence got me for christmas. past years I hung out with friends and partied but this newyears is likely to be forgotten. Its kind of sad how everyone else had plans this year elsewhere. But hey, fringe and 24 YEAH!

Went out on a date. It didn't go well. She could not stop talking about her damn cat. I ended up staying home, drinking wine and doing shots with my friends over Skype. I miss them. It's sad how quickly life goes on and how people move far away.
