It runs ok, cause I can format and go to the saved partion of the HDD, but its my bosses, and he needs the data on it. I have a seagate momentus 500 GB 7200 RPM that i bought for him to replace it with. So, i would like to know the steps I need to take to get the data off the HDD and onto the new one, cheers!
