With the help of a BC Advisor (many thanks!) we have identified that the hard drive in my Dell PC is failing, fast.
I need to buy a replacement, but there is just so much choice available.
The old drive is identified as: WDC WD3200KS-75PFB0
Is this drive a direct replacement? (Western Digital Caviar SE16 320GB S300 16MB (Mfr#: WD3200AAKS)
Second and third questions:
For easier backups, could I use a second one of these in an external USB enclosure, and what should I look for when buying one?
BTW - We have been using this drive for about 3 years, and in that time have only half-filled it.
Hence, as we are on a budget, we don't really need to buy a larger drive at this stage.
(Although it would be useful to know the largest/fastest/etc drive we could use with a Dell Dimension E520.)
