Need help backing up harddrive from broken laptop

I got a harddrive enclosure, and plugged in into the computer I am going to put the files on, but it shows up on the computer as system reserved K: 70.3 MB free of 99.9MB
My hard drive is 500GB

What you are seeing is the system partition and should not be edited at all. Everyone should have one if they have Windows 7.

Could you go to Start > Computer and show me the list of drives that you can see available? To attach a screenshot follow this tutorial - Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

After that could you also upload a screenshot of your disk management similar to my one. To do this follow this tutorial - Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

Many Thanks,
Josh!
