OK, So I currently have:
x1 Hitachi Deskstar 160GB for O/S and Software Installations (About 60GB of this drive is used)
x1 WD Caviar 160GB for Documents, Photo's and Torrent downloads (About 120GB of this drive has been used on this drive. But it is filling uppp!)
x1 40GB IDE drive for source code.. but that doesn't matter.
My Hitachi Deskstar is giving up the ghost, so to speak. I knew that this was going to happen (so i have backups of the odd file that snook it's way onto the wrong hard drive). Today, It made a crunching-ish noise when my PC was booting - I knew some bad shi* was going down. I just got a BSOD Loop whilst trying to boot. I tried installing Ubuntu to the drive - it would format it.
Eh, I'm not that bothered. I backed up my important stuff.
But now, I need a new hard drive. I'm going to AVOID Hitachi, for various reasons.
I think that i'm going to get this
drive, but it would be nice to have your advice first!
I would copy my files from the Western Digital over to this newer, larger capacity drive, and use the Western Digital as my O/S Drive.
What do you think?
