PostSubject: New harddrive downtime   Sat Oct 10, 2009 9:44 am

Got my new laptop harddrive and external USB transfer kit this morning,

been a while coming, I have to fix sectors on my harddrive almost every week (takes 24 hours to do)

After assembling the transfer kit's external casing, I started the disk clone process, its been running for 5 hours and its only at 21%! Sad large harddrives take time I guess,

posting this from my old main computer, (that seriously needs some updating)

got a nice 19'' widescreen flat panel monitor for cheap, so its on its way.

gonna play some old games I guess, duke nukem 3d , BLOOD, DOOM... can't beat the classics (FPS that is)

I bet you feel as evil as I did when I bought my new Buffelo!

Nice, I got the 1TB my book drive for games and apps, but I hear the Buffalo drives are neater, how does your run?
how long would it take to transfer a 2GB file?, can you install a secondary USB bootable OS on it?
