My laptop hard drive decided to start acting up yesterday. Before it formally crashed (I’m not counting the 6 times where it just clicked and stopped working) I decided to make an image of it.
After I validated the image I went out and purchased a new internal SATA laptop drive. My new WD Black series is 350GIG, 7200RPM. It’s amazing that when I went to the store I did not realize it has been near 10 years since I last purchased a drive. I did not know who was on top Seagate or WD.
Just to be safe I also upgraded my desktop’s hard drive. My new desktop drive is 1 terabyte. It’s amazing that for 200 dollars I can get 1.3 terabytes of data storage.
