Survival of a MacBook Pro 2011... :unsure:

Recently, my laptop began booting with a folder and question mark. Help from YouTube, my dad, and a very small tool kit... Offered me the opportunity to boot my Macintosh HD via hard drive enclosure. 

However, before I take any final steps to replace the hard drive cable....

Is there anything I should be weary about? How long can a hard drive survive in an enclosure?

Thanks again~

You removed your internal drive, placed it into an enclosure and it then booted?

As long as you're careful, there really isn't much more to worry having it external than if it was internal or any other external drives. 

So strange that the cable decided to give out.

Wish you luck!
