    Replacement hard drive left out in cold. Still good?


    I had a replacement hard drive sent to me from newegg. It was delivered on 2/11/2021 i was away yesterday day tending to my mother who is sick. I didn't get home till 2 am this morning it is now 2:22am on 2/12/2021. The temps here was in the 20's Fahrenheit is the drive still good if i leave it to warm up for a few days? I never left one in the cold so i really have no clue. I have built alot of pc's for me and my family but i never left parts outside that long before.

    Windows 10 Build 19041.450.

    :)

    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.

    It will only take 5 minutes to become a professional hard drive partitioner. Replacement hard drive left out in cold. Still good? :)

    Replacing a laptop hard drive with a SSD

    I have a Dell Latitude E5420 laptop which has a Windows 10 Pro O/S. I would appreciate a step by step guide on the procedure to replace the hard drive with a Solid State drive; specifically dealing with the transfer of all the software from the old drive to the new. I have an external hard drive I use for backups and a free version of the Macrium Reflect program on the hard drive. The SSD is brand new. I have just 50 GB in total on the 231 GB hard drive. The SSD has 250 GB capacity.
