    Default hard drives

    My HD is only 20GB, and I want to change to 80 or even 120GB. Can this be possible? and how can i transfer all my old files to my new HR?

    You should be able to add a new HD. Depending on how old your PC is (give us the make, model and operating system .. XP?) will determine how big a HD it will recognize. If an older machine the BIOS may need to be updated. The easiest way to transfer files is to make your old HD a slave drive.

    Default HD

    Thanks for responding. I have a Dell Dimension L700 with home edition XP.128MB RAM. How can I make my old HD a slave?

    make sure you can update your BIOS first. It may not be able to take a large hard drive.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
