Ok, a while ago I started a topic complaining about my PC being slow as feck. Lamsey suggested it might be the actual hard drive which was at fault, so I've decided to get a new hard drive soon (within a week). The hard drive I'm gonna be replacing is an 80GB drive, I've got about 30GB of data to backup still.
So, instead of backing it up 700MB at a time on CD-R, I've been thinking about doing it differently.
I'm thinking about installing windows on the new drive (as the drive I'm replacing is my windows drive), then moving 30GB of files from my other drives onto the new drive, removing the new drive, putting the old one back in, and then putting the 30GB of files I wanted to backup originally onto the space I cleared on my other drives.
Is that going to work?
