Default HDD Question.

Hello,

Soon I will have a new system, and right now I am trying to back up data. I know that the hdd where OS is installed will most likely not work in a new system. I currently using 3 WD640AAKS HDD two of them in raid 0 and the 3rd one is where I keep all my music/movies. Can i just back up all my data to this 3rd hdd will it work fine with a new system or do I need to use an external hdd?

Thanks.

Default Re: HDD Question.

If the third HDD is big enough to take all your data then it will be fine.

You'll need to rebuild your RAID array for the new m/board (most probably) but the third drive will work no worries
