...With a lot of advice from my older brother, Jeff (OrmontUS), the new drive is now installed as the C drive and is working well. The old C drive was slow because it was almost 60% filled. My files occupy only a tiny slice of the new drive -- it's almost comical. I feel like I just moved into Versailles. - WendyBG | Date: 12/11/2012 1:06:11 PM | Number: 869560


Your old drive was NOT slow because it was sixty percent full, or utilized. It was slow because it used slower, older technology and likely a much slower rotational speed.

With the Seagate drive you made an excellent selection of a drive vender. I was an original Venture Capital investor in Seagate(SGAT as the IPO) in the late nineteen seventies of the early nineteen eighties. The two founders of Seagate were Alan Shugart and Finus Conner originally with IBM storage products division. Conner later left Seagate to start Conner Peripherals.
