Advice on new system drive
on Aug 21, 2008 at 8:27:15 pm

My system drive is giving signs of failing
ie. takes a long time to save to, takes a long time to move files to and from, and other slow downs.

My other internal drives do not have this problem

Disk utilities show nothing wrong with it.

I have trashed prefs and repaired per. I just did a clean install of Lep. 10.5.4 with all up-dates and loaded all my software. It took over 20 hours to load FCP studio 2.

So insted of reloading all my software to see if it was my OS or the drive I am going to get a new systewm drive, so there is no chance Ill have to load everything twice.

So my questions is what brand internal driver (WD Seagate) and is there any issues about what size it should be?

Hope i was clear

FCP Studio 2
2x2.66 Ghz Dual-Core Intel Xeon

3 gig ram
