    So the 18 gig hd that I have now is cutting it close to full already?

    I still have a few 30 gig hd's but I want to keep all my saved data.. Can I just put another HD in or is there other steps I have to go through?

    I've swapped out plenty of HD's but never added another one.


    It's also in a really mini tower, but I can make a suitable bracket to hold the new HD.

    as long as you have a free power molex plug and a free data IDE plug, you can use it.

    primary cable can have a master and slave

    just make sure you set your jumprs right.

    as long as your current hdd is primary master, you can put it any of the other 3 spots.
