View Full Version : Would it be worth reinstalling windows?
12-15-06, 06:42 AM
Okay, I recieved a Maxtor Diamond 10 300 GB in the mail yesterday, and i was curious if reinstalling windows from my old 40 GB 2 MB cache western digital hard drive would show MAJOR performance increases loading wise.. I do doubt it myself that it will be enough to warrent a reinstall but I am just curious if anyone else has done this or something similar to this and seen large loading time decreases.

How old is your previous install?

3 or 4 months.

Don't waste your time then. Just use the manufacturer's software and do a "disk copy" to the new drive and then defrag and you'll be all good.

I don't think you would see that much of a performance increase, I could be wrong though. I mean you wouldn't see the performance increase between the diamond max and a raptor, so unless your worried about the WD dying on you anytime soon I'd say it'd be fine like it is.
