a 2 in 1 question really, I'll start with the easy one 1) What HDD do you recommend for a Sony FZ190 laptop, (SATAII, 3gbps) with a high storage capacity (250GB+ desired, hybrid tech optional, must be reliable) 2) the laptop currently has an 80GB drive in it at the moment and works fine; is there any way to copy the operating system and all files (since its an OEM installation) over to the new drive without reinstalling the operating system from scratch? preferably without reinstallation of any kind. Help much appreciated. also, since I rarely post in the forums anymore, if this is the wrong forum, please move it rather than deleting it. ty all!
