Harddrive Upgrade

Hey guys and gals. OK, so I originally had a 20gb HDD, which I upgraded to a 60gb around a year ago.

Once again I have run out of space and might be upgrading to a 120 or even 250gb HDD. My question is, could I just transfer the data over as I did before? I swear I heard somewhere you can only change HDD once...dont know if thats true.

Cheers for the help guys :)

[quote user="VenomousSting"]I swear I heard somewhere you can only change HDD once...dont know if thats true.[/quote]What it really says is that the transfer can only be performed once. In the past, after a successful transfer the source drive was erased. You couldn't transfer from, say, a 20GB to four different 60GB disks because after the first transfer the 20GB would just be an empty drive.

 

None of this applies to the new transfer software. You can cancel all the transfer dialogs and manually copy data to/from the Transfer Cable connected drive. It shows up under System Settings, Memory as a Transfer Cable device.
