I keep hearing that bigger HDs speed up things! I'm running on a 40gig HD @7200. I have a spare 20 gig of same speed. I'm only using 5 gig of my 40,so cant understand that adding the other would make it any faster!! Any ideas would be gratefully received.
Technotiger has summed it up very nicely methinks.
Not awfully sure about SATA hard drives, whether they are quicker or not, but I'm sure someone can put you right about that. My external USB2 hard drive seems to be pretty speedy, but that is as maybe.
Thanks everyone- I didn't think it would make any difference, but I may put the spare in my "spare" pc, which only has 8gig. I have a Duron 1200 & 500 x PC133, which will have to suffice for a while yet! Thanks again, Al
