So, I have a couple questions that Google hasn't been very kind in answering.
I was thinking of replacing my HDD, which is a Seagate 7200.10 500GB since it's on the noisy side. It may be my imagination, but it seems to be getting noisier, so I've got a hunch that it may bite the dust in the future.
Is it possible to install a 2nd HDD, say a 7200.12 or Caviar Black (open to suggestions), mirror the primary drive, then swap the drives so the new HDD becomes the primary? I'd probably keep using the old one just as storage for unimportant stuff. Or am I better off doing a full system wipe and starting from scratch?
Also, would there be any noticeable difference in speed from an 7200.10 to one of the drives I mentioned?
