May be some settings on the replacement drive - acoustic management, etc., -
which you would have to adjust with a vendor-specific utility. Also, I
believe there is some option to mfsrestore to increase the cache or swap
space or something, that is recommended with larger drives. It's probably
mentioned in the Hinsdale procedures.
