Can I remove a hard drive from my MacPro, and then re-install it at a later date, and the computer will recognize it with the same name as before? Do I need to take any special precautions?

Chris, As long as the drive isn't physically damaged while its out of the system, it should come right back up when you reinstall it into the system. The only precaution I can think of would be if the drive you are removing is part of a RAID set. In that case you'll have to make sure that the drives are placed back into the exact same bays as there were previously. If its just a stand alone drive though, you shouldn't have any issues with removing it and replacing it at a later date.

Great! Thank you David. What would I do without the Cow?
