Clearing Out The Hard Drive

My old computer broke last year.. I think I know what happened and it could be easily repaired.. Maybe for the kids in a few years...or maybe I should just sell the shell on Ebay.. I dunno.. But anyway, I took the hard drive out and have been wanting to use it as an external hard drive... But I have no idea what I'm doing. I googled and think I found instructions, now all i have to do is find something to back the files up on before I start cleaning everything off.
