SATA and the 1.5 / 3.0 gb Jumper - can I remove

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..

  1. Grr - sry, getting late I meant 150mg or 300mg mode
  2. You will be fine. All the jumper does is limit the speed to allow compatability with older SATA connections. The data itself will be unaffected.
  3. Great stuff - cheers
