Yea just plug into the computer via Universal Serial Bus (USB) and done

But will you just be using it for storing data ? Because there not fast compared to a 3.5 inch drive which are hard drives fitted into computers

An alright price, and a very compact Hard drive. But 30 GB is not enough too me.

Sorry, voted cold.

30GB for £29
or
120GB for £50 (delivered)

Kinda puts it into perspective that this isnt really that hot of a deal. If your interested, it's the "Freecom Mobile 120GB 2.5" Hard Drive" from Amazon, and since it's Freecom you'll actually get a decent hard drive... Beware of this deal - it's a 'DIY' job and the drive they use could be very cheap indeed.

I got a 500gb external usb drive (maxtor) for £64 from this forum, this is just too much for too little

thanks:thumbsup: my hard drive is tiny about 35gb and im running out of space and thinking of either putting stuff on usb sticks or cds or something but that would be a pain

Amazon are also selling a "LaCie, 120GB Mobile Hard Drive, High speed USB2.0" for £45 delivered, although they state delivery is 4 to 6 weeks.

well erm no not really its not hard

Bascally there is two ways of doing it.

1) Simply plugging a new hard drive into the machine so you have two hard drives

or

2) Clone your exisiting hard drive to a bigger one so you have one

Its easier to do one

SO in My Computer it shows up and two hard drives.

Its very easy

When you do it let me know ill help you through it



Also how old is your computer
Do you know if its SATA or IDE?

Did you use an Anti Static Band?

All you have to do open the PC stick in a new hdd screw it in the case. Plug the power lead in and IDE cable and You done!

Unless you want to do option 2 thats diffrent harder for you !

Yes but if you had staic on you and you put the ram in it would screwed your PC

Ive never touched a PC without a band

Because it could cost me alot

Anyway what make is your computer? You need to make sure you got space for another hdd

Just turn the PC off (the switch on the back of the PSU), touch the metal case chassis for a few seconds, and you should be ok... Just use common sense and be careful. The bands are only a few quid so if your inexperienced it may be best for you.

Been building computers for years - never used one - never had any faults caused through static.

the drive will be branded the case isn't

Have you tried freeing up sace on you drive by deleting temporary files etc.?

If you haven't done this before then you will free up a lot of space, certainly a good few Gb's:

CCleaner is popular:

Back up your important files first though, to memorystick or burn to cd/ dvd.
