After posting I googled it ( should have done that first)
Obviously switch off and leave plug in.
I am replacing my G, back up drive as it only has 6 gigs space left.
Underfloor heating here so no rads.
Will get strap from Amazon.
As I said above never used one before when changing HDDs
Thanks for input.
Firstly, I'd like to point out that when you work on a PC you don't 'earth' yourself. If you do that, you increase the chance of a static shock. You want to be on the same electrical level as what your working on.
If working the the PC case then connect your wrist band to some metal in the case(unplugged). If working on the motherboard outside the case, then a good place to touch is the I/O covers, NEVER the actual board.
Hope this helps.
