I Won't Say a Word about Harry Bleeping Potter

My new 250-gig hard drive arrived yesterday. So when I got home, I started copying the stuff from the drive I wanted to replace onto my external hard drive. This took around eight hours or so. Before that I updated the bios on my computer, just to be on the safe side, in case it might help me through any 137-gig barriers.

Then this morning I swapped the drives. Figuring out how to remove the old drive was a chore and a half, because of this weird bracketing system Del uses in this computer. Then I used the dispart program to partition the new drive and assign it a drive letter, then I formatted, and bingo! Tonight just before I go to sleep I'll start the process of transfering all the copied data back onto this new drive. I'm so proud of myself!
