how hard to replace titanium internal hard drive? How to clone old hard drive onto it?
Hi all -
I have a 2001 titanium laptop with a 20 Gig hard drive. The thing is
getting too full and I'm toying with the idea of getting a bigger one and
replacing it. Questions: 1) how hard is it to do myself? Is it easy to
ruin/break something or is it pretty simple to do it right? 2) are there
instructions somewhere on-line? 3) are there different brands of drives I
can buy? If so, any suggestions for good ones or ones to avoid? and 4) I
don't want to re-install the OS, software, preferences, GUI behavior, etc.
Is it possible to clone my internal drive onto the new one s...FS: 3 Hard Drives

...Using an internal hard drive as an external hard drive
I have 2 internal disks that I have taken out from a PC that has failed me
after 6 years of use. I now am using an HP notebook, and I need data from
these 2 disks that I wanted to copy to my laptop ... or possibly use these
2 disks as some sort of temporary storage.
In my previous work, we had some kind of caddy / container for hard disks,
you place the hard disk inside, and it has some minimal wirings to allow
you to plug-in power to the hard disk, and some cable to attach for the
data ( like the flat ribbon inside the PC ). However, I do not know what
this is called and therefore don't...Housing two 2.5-inch hard disks in one 3.5-inch drive bay?

My WD mybook external hardrive died, and now i need a new one for my
laptop (which has th elaptop firewire conneciton, which isn't the same
as the pc firewire connection that most external harddrives come with,
thus need to use usb)
So I'm thinking of getting the following toshiba 320 gb external ( see
link below). However I have also been considering getting a regular
internal harddrive and enclosure. would this be better in terms of
reliability and speed? How difficult is this to set up? If this is
better any recommendations for a 300-500 gb drive and enclosure?

...Creating a hard drive image
I have never seen this sort of hardware setup before (setup sun and ia
servers before, worked with old hardware before, but never saw this
setup). What this site has is a rack of boards, that sort of look like
old mainframe multiplexer controller boards ... but htis one rack has a
SPARC board that connects to a box above it, which holds an enclosed
hard drive, about 20 gb.
It reportedly (couldnt connect to it one day to run commands to see
exactly what it has hardware and software wise) is running 5.7 SunOS

It reportedly has five 4gb partitions, one or more of which m...Underside hard drive coolers bad for hard drives

Could it be possible that the cooler is causing vibration issues and
this is causing the hard drive to exhibit problems over time?

The hard drive in my Mac G3 desktop began making unhealthy sounds, as though
a bearing is going. Is there a way for me to "clone" or image this hard
drive to a new hard drive? Or will I have to install the new hard drive,
format, and reinstall the operating system and programs from scratch?
For those of you who might think the wiser course would be to scrap the G3
altogether and move up to something newer, I feel a new hard drive would be
a worthwhile fix because the rest of the computer is fine. It is mostly used
for word processing, web surfing, and email, so in that respect it i...copy a program from hard drive to usb hard drive

A standard hard disk doesn't fit into this exactly. (I recently put a
Seagate Barracuda ST12550N into a 65SX.)
I was able to get the Seagate drive installed in a fairly secure way,
but if your drive doesn't fit well enough to be secure, you might have
to drill a set of screw holes.

I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I want to purchase a higher
capacity hard drive and have it replace my existing one. I would like
to make a bootable copy of my existing one by using my external USB
drive enclosure. My plan is to place the new drive in this enclosure
and use Powerquest Drive Image 7 to copy my existing drive to the new
one, then removing the existing with the new one
Will this work? I know Drive Image will let me dup from internal to
internal (primary to slave),but it's not clear whether I can use its
