Question about Computers & Internet
They just go along in a conservatory mode all the time ...
as long as you will buy same speed and bus( sata) they will fit and work ..I think they will be working with different speed also ...but to be in the 2.5 Sata to fit in the place ..
and the size it is not important ..you can even insert 2 x 500G each ..if you want ..the power used will be the same ...maybe a little more...but the rest will not matter ..
How to transfer ??nothing more simpler..
To avoid double boot...(to have 2 operation system in the same time ...cause this is confusing ..) first insert the new Hdd..and install the operation system on it ....
than in the place that remain empty ..insert the Hdd that has no operation system on it ..(one of the old ones.D drive ...) and move all the files from it ..to the bigger one that you just installed..and after that format it to remove any other leftovers..
Now..remove the new one ...and insert the one that was in the first place ...Boot it up...and move any files you need from it ..into the one you just cleaned..
Remove it ,and insert the new one again ...now you can move the rest of the files in the new (bigger ) one ..
if you got a second new one ...install it in the place of the old one you used to transfer files..and you ended up with 2 new biiger hdd and with th efiles from the old on in it ..format the second one ..move the files as you please.
The other ones are useful in this moment to make external HDD from them ...Just buy a couple of rack cases from eBay ..and transform them into USB based hdd..to use for transferring data ..and such ..or store excessive ones..
Here is a link with some Hdd that will fit..and some rack adapters I was talking about ..
The idea if you will be able is to buy the stuff from a shop around your area..so you will have a healthy warranty policy ..I only link this to make you an idea about..
rack enclosure for 2.5 hdd
For the Hdd the isdea is to be sure they are on 2.5 and on sata..not to buy another kind...and not fit in...cause toshiba works on 1.8 also ..

The total capacity of the harddrive what you got with this machine was 120 GB since you are using RAID technology it is 60 gb + 60 gb, and the what your system supports is 5400 rpm for your computer.
But if you want you can increase it to 80gb of the two or too the max of 120 gb each
because i have checked your processor which is intel Pentium M 760 so there should be no problems upgrading your harddrive.
If you wish you can also see it refer to this link below
Processor info : http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=27595
you can see your system configration at :
ans 2 : you can also change the rpm uptill 7200
ans 3: if you want to back up your data use any external device.

you can replace the hard drive to 120GB. The tech was advising you not to upgrade the drives because the capacity of the system motherboard, processor and Ram might be to small of the drives.
But I would advice that while you upgrade the drives, you will also have to upgrade the system ram so that the system won't be slow as a result of the larger drives.
Lastly, to transfer your data, get an external drive and copy all the data into it, before you upgrade the drives.
I hope this is clear to you now.
