Customer Question

I want to get a new hardrive for my desktop. Nothing special, I have an external one for storage. Its just that the one I have is partitioned and dual-boot and it's glitchy because of that. How do I find out what hardrive will be comparable with my hardware?
Maybe I should just take it to a shop.

Hi there and welcome

Whats the make and model of the computer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

to be honest, I don't know. I'm not sure how to find out, and i think some of the hardware may not match exactly what you would expect, as i bought it refurbished from a local computer shop.

Ok, then its going to be Sata, so any Sata drive up to 1TB will safely work in the computer.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
