Is Your Upgrade an Addition or a Replacement?

Like memory, when you upgrade your hard disk drive, in most cases you are actually adding a second disk drive to your system rather than replacing a smaller, slower hard disk with a larger, faster drive. In most PCs, accommodating a second hard disk drive is no problem. There are very few reasons why you should ever be forced to remove your existing hard disk and replace it with a new one. The following are the exceptions:

  • Your PC physically does not have room (that is, there is no empty drive bay) for a second hard disk drive.

  • You are switching from IDE drives to SCSI drives.

  • Your hard disk drive fails and has to be replaced.
