Will removing an old drive, cause the data to disapppear? My Dell suggests removing the old drive and putting it into the bottom slot, with the new drive in the top one. Will this cause any changes to the original drive?

probably wont make much of a difference but these are a penny cheaper on ebuyer, handy if your combining delivery of several items

Nope, this drive is no longer listed for sale by ebuyer. When this deal was posted at £73.90 from Scan, Ebuyer were selling this drive for £75.99. This was the case for many days afterwards, and while ebuyer may have moved from £75.99 to £73.89 yesterday before stopping selling it altogether, this drive is still cheaper at Scan as since I posted this deal Scan have moved the price lower to now £73.78.

Removing a drive PROPERLY will not harm your data or cause changes to your drive. HOWEVER, you have to take care not to damage it when removing it. Damage can occur by, for example, exposure to magnetic fields (putting the drive near a magnet eg a speaker); exposure to electric shock (this is possibly the most common, as you can built up a static charge without realising it and zap your drive when you first touch it if you don't take precautions); and exposure to a physical shock it can't handle (eg dropping it). Read all the instructions that come with your drive and your computer and look up a few guides on the internet before attempting to remove a drive for the first time - and then follow the instructions and you should be fine. But BACKUP YOUR DATA - all of it to a second drive if you can, and the most important stuff to a dvd/flash drive if you can't - before you open up your machine. Removing/moving a drive is not normally a particularly difficult thing to do, but if you do damage your drive any of the data that is still recoverable can cost in excess of £1000 for specialists to retrieve. If you know someone who has done this before, it never hurts to have them around to watch over you your first time.

Sorry for the long post, I don't mean to scare you, I move my drives on my desktop every second day. It's one of those things that's easy when you're aware of the dangers, take precautions and have done it a few times, but can be disastrous if you charge in blindly, zap your drive and loose vital data.

Good luck.

Sound advice. Yeah I don't really change Hard Drives, but I was thinking I'd have to due to adding a second one so I was a bit cautious about the whole ordeal ;]

Well after not ordering from Scan for one year due to dissatisfaction, I see there is no change to their poor performance.

Ordered one of these yesterday morning (in stock) at 08.30. Card debited at 09.30. At 20.10 a badly written email telling me how busy they have been and that the order is delayed. No date for dispatch, just the usual **** about how they value my custom.

Same as they have always been IMHO. Pathetic.

Ebuyer all the way from now on.

Ouch! Sorry to hear that.

I've ordered three of these drives from Scan on seperate occassions over the last couple of months and each time the drives arrived within 48hours. Don't know if I've been lucky, or if you've been unlucky.:thinking:

Let us know when your drive finally arrives.
