Installing new hard disc to increase capacity

  wolshouse 19:44 08 Jul 2003

Hi My Dell Dimension 4100 has 20 GB IDE Hard Drive, and I would like to increase this capacity, as I am running with 75% used space.

I am a comparative novice ,but willing to learn, so can someone point me in the right direction!!

If you buy a retail boxed drive, say Maxtor or similar, it will come with all the screws and fittings etc PLUS a software disk which will configure all the drive options for you. All you have to do it set the new drive jumper to slave position if you want to set it up as Slave. Most new drives come with jumpers set as Master. About 80 GB should be reasonable. You can transfer all settings from your old drive to the new using the software disk that comes with the new drive. Set it as Master then leave your old drive as secondary drive configured as slave. You have many options. Check the set up at this site <click here>
