Okay I have decided to purchase a new internal hard drive since the original has problems or its contents may be recovered one day.
Anyway here is the computer's specs according to the packaging slip from Dell
1. DIM E10, P4, 630 (3.O GHZ), HT
2. 160GB SERIAL ATA, 7200 RPM, DIM, M
3. 16X DVD-ROM AND 16X DVD+/-RW, DIM05, M
4. 17IN (17.0 IN) E173FPV, FPIB, DIM, M
5. 512MB DDR2 SDRAM, 400MHZ- 2X256MB, DIM, M
This is a Dell E510 modal desktop which I got in the Fall of 2005. I also do not completely understand all the descritpions that I typed for the specs.
Since I just want to replace the hard drive for now, only those specs should matter (for the most part)
I am looking for a hard drive of about the same capacity though smaller might be better since I plan to backup more intensively. Also I would like to have the drive partitioned even though I have never done such. I have read that partitioning is rather useful so I can have X amount reserved just for OS purposes and the rest for other categories.
Advice and suggestions are very much welcomed.
