Hi--I've just learned in another thread here that my hard drive is pretty close to completely dying, so it seems to me like my best option right now is to buy a new drive and clone everything over as quickly as possible while it's still functioning okay. In looking at replacement drives, I'm wondering which is the better option: going for an SSHD hybrid (I don't think I want to go for a full SSD, given how expensive and relatively small they are) with about 500GB or getting a plain old HDD but with tons of space, a TB or so. It's for a laptop which I'll be using for normal everyday internet stuff as well as a lot of photo editing and design work (Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign), if that affects anything. My options are a little limited because this is for a very thin laptop, so it needs to be a 7mm drive (hence the choice between speed or space).
Sorry if this is a totally obvious dumb question, I've never upgraded a hard drive before! Thanks for any advice you can offer.
