I have a OptiPlex GX280 Desktop computer that's running just fine, except the hard is periodically making some bad noises. I figured I'd buy a replacement drive, create an Acronis image of the old drive, and burn it to the new drive. I also figured I'd improve the drive in the process:
Old drive: Western Digital WD800JB SATA 80GB 7,200RPM 8MB Buffer
New Drive: Western Digital WD10EALX SATA 1.0TB 7,200RPM 32MB Buffer
Are the disparities in drive type going to problematic with the old drive's image burned to the new drive? I suspect it's not an issue, but I wanted to bounce it off some EE experts before I made the purchase.
