My 80gb (2mb cache) HDD was filling up fast with all my recent photo's for projects, so i put a new 160gb seagate HDD with 8mb cache (both 7200rpm) im just wondering, is it more hassle than its worth copying all files over to my new 160gb and making my 80gb the slave or should I just leave it as the 80gb as primary and the 160gb slave. Your help will be much appreciated, also i need help with this topic still :tazz:

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Unless you have some compelling reason to make that change, I suggest leaving the 80G as your primary boot drive and the 160 G as slave. Move those photo projects to the other drive to give more room on the 80 G master.
