Re: Seagate momentus 3 60gb problem

What software did you use for the cloning?
Ghost is the preferred method.
Be sure to choose a disk to disk clone, not a partition clone.
It sounds like you may have created a 20G partition and left 40G unallocated.
Partition Magic may also take care of the problem, if you have access to a copy.

Hi bryan685, if i understood correctly, you want to move your files to anew and bigger hard drive, but from my experience it is much better not to, becauseit can cause a lot of troubles, you should format your computer and install itagain on the new hard drive. I hope i helped you! If you liked me please rate!

Primary master drive st98823a is about to fail(SMART THRESHOLD EXCEEDED) what should i do

Replace it. If it is still working, Aluratek makes a disk duplicator that works pretty well, it can clone the drive. We replace drives preventatively, these days. Get it out while it is working and it is one tenth of the work.

Hi There. I am looking for an Internal Hard Drive to suit a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. Seagate Momentus 5400.3 160Gb ST9160821AS. Where can I get one or is there another Hard Drive that would be OK to use...

I suggest you check the specification of your Dell laptop to see the maximum size hard drive it can support. The maximum size hard disk you can install in the laptop depends upon the BIOS.
Any major brand of 2 1/2" hard drive will work with the Dell.
