1.5 TB HD question

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a seagate 1.5TB unit from tigerdirect which will be here on wednesday. Iwill have to check and probly upgrade the firmware for starters to solve that misfornate bug and then stress test it for stabilty.

now for my question

why is it better to install the os on a smaller drive? whould it make a diference if i made 2 partions C:1TB D:500GB or use the whole drive?

I have heard that read and write times are a little slower then there 1TB model.

but serious waht is the reason for installing the os on one drive or partion that storing data on another if you upgrade hardware you need to do a fresh install anyway, right?

that is true and knock on wood for that how long do you run the HDD at one time and how long have you had it? int he past week or two they relesed the firmware to fix the cache issue causing the drive to freeze up

is the one offered at newegg you should relly contact seagate tech support by phone first to make sure you need it or don't already have the update. also if i'm not mistaken there is a new version of the firmware anyway but again you should conatct seagate support first before doing this as you can really mess things up for yourself.

There are two versions of the new firmware, make sure you flash the one that corresponds to your HDD, so you don't brick it.
