Should I upgrade from IDE 100GB HDD to 400GB SATA HDD?
Posted on 2006-10-29
I have a concern regarding the possible need to upgrade my HDD. At the present time, I have a 100GB IDE HDD with 26.9GB free. With this point in mind, I am wondering if it may be time to start considering an upgrade. I did run across a good deal on a 400GB SATA HDD. And, since my motherboard supports SATA connections, I am wondering if this may be worthwhile to pursue.
I do have a USB 200GB HDD hooked up to backup end user files such as mp3's, jpeg's, and mini movie files. Since I already have this setup, I am wondering if I can simply get by with what I currently have without purchasing a bigger drive. However, I do a lot of DVD recording using Nero and wondering if this program leaves any backup files which should be deleted following the recordings. At the present time, I assume this is not a requirement and thus should not be filling up my HDD.
Any suggestions or directions to this concern will be appreciated. I look forward to hearing from everyone regarding this post.
