Hard Drive.

Post by leona »

Ok, I have run HDD Info on my Toppy.
It told me I have a Seagate ST3250823A installed.

Now I did a quick google and its telling me this is an SATA Drive.
Is this right, anyone know?
If so it will make my upgrade path a lot easier (and cheaper!).
Kind Regards

Leona

suggests that it is a 250G PATA drive.

What size does HDD Info report? I guess that anything under 500G is likely to be PATA.
