if i get the 250, will i have to do some other step and is it hard? this step needed w/ a 160GB? i have an 80 right now, but its nearing its end.
thanks in advance

if i get 250gb, i would put the rest on the g drive?

You can also FTP the C and E drives to the PC and make the new HD first, then do the upgrade to it. That way if you mess up, you have the 80 gig you can still put in there.
If you get the 250, you should still be able to keep all the data on the F drive. I would use Xbpartitioner to format it in 32k clusters to be safe.

Anyways get the 250GB hard drive. Ive had very good luck with western digital hard drives. They never stop working. You would probably want to nkpatch .06 so you can have one huge ass F partition. I have a 250 gig hard drive running fine without partitioning in 32k clusters. But as pointed out may as well do it to be safe.

LBA48 supported, partition 6 takes rest of the drive
that mean i can just format the new hd w/out the other patching, partitioning stuff?

F:\ will be apx 235GB
and just format without messing with the partition
