I live way back in the hills where techs operate from a spare bedroom or the backs of their cars, so. . . .

Question: I have an "old" computer with a 10 gig hard drive and a new one with an 80. Is it ill advised to take the old hard drive and have it installed in the new computer, to act as a back up, complete with all operating systems, programs, settings, etc., a kind of a computer within a computer, in case the hard drive should decide to do a melt-down? I've done a systems back up, but all that's on the hard drive, so I worry.
