  1. Needing to up-size my Hard Drive and need software to do the job


    Computer is stuttering and slowing. If you go to My PC it's easy to see that i have done what I thought when i bought the comp would be impossible, pushing 931 Gb on my hard drive. So a newer larger hard drive is the only answer. Prices have dropped, so now or never. The problem is getting a bootable hard drive with the existing OS. Does anyone know of good cheap software? Probably get a SSD drive later on so will have to do this again but that can't be helped.


    Thanks in advance Doug.

    :)

    Partitioning My Hard Drive Without Losing Data


    Download any of the suggested programs above and fire up Youtube for a step by step instruction. Easus is a good software. But I personally use MiniTool Partition Wizard.

    Overclock your hard drive!!!

    Heres a much easier hack that I realized quite a few years ago that really does work!

    REQUIREMENTS:
    • Hard drive with molex power connection.
    • PSU with more than 1 strand that has molex plugs on it.
    • Wire strippers, soldering iron if you're fancy, electrical tape if you're not.
    STEPS:
    • Take the strand of connectors from your PSU, and decide which one will be the donator for this overclocking adventure.
    • Cut the yellow and orange cables, then twist them together.
    • Find the power connector you've chosen as the overclocking connector, and release the orange cable from the connector. Now use your preferred method to bind them together, then place it back together.
    • Plug in a drive and feel the speed!
    Congratulations! You've just overclocked your hard drive!
