I have had this computer for about 6 years now and have no reason to believe that the HD is about to become faulty. I am wondering if, just as a safety measure, I should replace it or at least add another against the evil day when this one finally wears out.
When I get another I would imnagine that I would transfer all my data and the operating (W2K) system to the new one. Can I just copy all of the directories from one HD to the other to achieve this? Will the computer boot from the new HD after I have done it?
