Well, I've got to decide what hard drive I want to get. I'm sick of fooling around with having XP take up so much space on this HDD and if I go through the task of reinstalling Vista and all the apps I have, I'm only going to do it once haha. So here are my options:
*Buy a new HDD SOLELY for Music, Movies, Docs, etc.
*Use my current 750GB for my OS(s)
*Use my other 750GB in my external (where it is now)
*Buy a new HDD (up to 1TB) to slap in my external for backups, transfers, etc.
*Use my 2 750GB HDDs and put them in Raid 1 so I don't have to worry about backing crap up.
To me personally, plan A sounds easier...I really don't have a lot of stuff that's really important to backup so Raid 1 would almost be a waste of an HDD. But I don't want it to seem like I answered my own question, so I still need suggestions....
These are the HDDs I was looking at and newegg has them all 10% off right now (up to 10 bucks off..promo thingy). Keep in mind, anything going in the external has to be 1TB or less....if that's part of your suggestion.
Is this slower though?...since it's the "green" version...like, will it flux. between 5400 and 7200?...
I'm not even going to post the WD 1TB Black because for 10 bucks more I can get the 1.5TB Seagate...so...
Let me know...
