Hi, i am looking into buying a new hard drive and having my current one as a second. I know i have space for 2 but i was wondering how to go about it, i am looking arat getting another SATA and im pretty confident on the connection etc but i just wanted to know what else i need to know about buying one before i put it in as i dont want to go buying the wrong one.

Hi, sorry for delayed response, I currently have an 80GB HDD. Where abouts can i find the spec of my current hard drive? Im assuming Everest would tell me...

(Thanks for the advice everyone)

if you are happy opening up the pc all the info you require is on the existing hard drive.

yeh, i dont mind, i just wondered if there was anothwer way round it because the side of my case is really annoying to get back on, but i dont mind opening it just to check :)

Just to inform you, i have a Maxtor 6L080M0 currently. After looking at Everest It has an
8mb buffer

Anything else i need to know, there is alot more info there but dont know how much of it i actually need to compare with a new one.

Also, if i get a new hard drive, if i make it the primary one, will i need to reinstall windows on it, or would i have to buy Windows XP again?
