SATA and the 1.5 / 3.0 gb Jumper - can I remove Tags: Hard Drives SATA Jumper Storage Last response: November 6, 2008 10:22 PM in Storage Share FrozenNail November 6, 2008 9:44:58 PM Just a quick one this. While configuring my new sata drive I noticed my old one has the jumper that restricts it's speed to 1.5 gbs. As this is going to remain my boot disc for now - can I remove the jumper or will that kill the data on the drive..

All the jumper does is limit the speed to allow compatability with older SATA connections. The data itself will be unaffected. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
