  1. For the artistic souls in LTT, there is a new WD contest! If you are a creative champion, check out my signature! :)

  2. Hello there, @JackBlack! There is quite a number of cloning/migrating and back up software programs out there that you can use to do this. I personally use Acronis True Image for this purpose, because it lets you select manually the stuff you wish to clone/backup. However, you just got your brand new PC and system up and running, so I'd strongly recommend re-installing your software apps and programs from the old system. This is a different computer, a different motherboard, so starting everything from scratch is the best way to avoid any compatibility issues with the programs from yo
  3. Happy Holidays, Linus Tech Tips! Did you backup the most memorable moments from 2014 already? ^^

  6. Hey there, @InspectorNinja! I'd agree with @AleksaNS as well, I believe you will be satisfied with the WD Black. It's a performance drive and many users/customers are pleased with it using FRAPS or Dxtory. [EDITED LINKS]: http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=760 However, you already have our 10 000 RPM VelociRaptor, so if I were you I'd take another look at it and maybe get the 1 TB version. Especially if you are planning to use it for recording as well: [EDITED LINKS]: http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=20 I guess there would be no wrong choice between th
  7. Hi again, @sid0195! Yes, it's totally possible that the problem is with the SATA cable itself. Did you tried with a different computer as well? You can also try swapping the SATA ports, because it might be the port on the mobo that's causing this. Keep me posted! Good luck! SuperSoph_WD
  8. Hey there, @sid0195! I'm truly sorry to hear about your WD drive! I'd advice you to back up the data on that drive ASAP! You can try it in another computer or with a different SATA cable and see how it will react. The recommended thing to do here is to test the drive using Data LifeGuard Diagnostics: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=810 It might fix the problem for you if it's some sort of corrupt data or not. If it passes the tests and still freezes, the HDD might have some sort of a physical damage. If the Extended test fails at any some point, I'd recommend c
  9. Hey there, @EdwardERS! Seems like you have quite the collection of WD products that are nicely put to use as storage solutions. Congrats on that! IMO, My Book could be a suitable addition to those. You get the speed with the USB 3.0 connection. It also comes with installed utilities like the WD SmartWare Pro automatic backup software with which you can back up even to your Dropbox account. You have the opportunity to do a system-level backup with Acronis True Image WD Edition as well, through which you can securely backup your whole OS. Another thing about WD My Book is that it c
  10. Hey there, @steve518! What kind of diagnostics did you run on it? Was it just chkdsk? I'd suggest to boot from the Windows installation disk and choose Repair, afterwards open the Command prompt window And type these commands: bootrec.exe /fixmbr bootrec.exe /fixboot bootrec.exe /rebuildcd Afterwards just reboot and hopefully the problem will go away. You can also try this simple thing, that usually works for new laptops' startup errors: Unplug the power and take off the battery for fifteen minutes, then connect it again and leave it for another 15 minutes or so before you
  11. Hey, @Brandogg255! Your storage solution looks solid to me, SSDs definitely are a highly reliable solution. You will also notice quite an improvement in performance and speed. I'd keep backups on the WD Green as well, together with all the other big data I want to store safely on it. If you are willing to pay for the SSD's reliability, I'd go for it. However, I can still suggest you to take a look at WD Black for gaming as well, or maybe even the WD VelociRaptor. WD Black is an HDD specifically designed for demanding applications and high-end gaming with 64 MB cache and 7200 RPM: h
  12. Hey there, @WHOISRYO! As @EcoBoost already mentioned, you're not going to be able to build a decent video editing PC with the WD Green drive. However, it's going to be a reliable storage for your projects and data, once they are finished. An SSD as a boot is the most reasonable solution as suggested. As for an HDD that would allow you to edit your videos and use the needed demanding applications, a WD Black will be suit your rig perfectly. These drives are specifically designed to work in environments that demand higher performance of the storage. The capacities vary from 500 GB up to
  13. Hey, @KarmaOfPain! I'm truly sorry to hear about your issue with your computer running slow. I'd suggest to test your WD Black for problems with the Data LifeGuard Diagnostics tool. The tool: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=810 How-to: http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/940 It will test the drive for errors and repair sectors. However, I'd still do what was already suggested and clean your redundant files and defrag the drive. Hope this helps you though! SuperSoph_WD
  14. Hey there, @maddogl! I personally like Acronis True Image when it comes to cloning, it's pretty good and easy to use, you can include or exclude whatever you want from the cloning process. The interface is pretty attractive as well. http://www.acronis.com/en-us Hope this helped. Cheers, SuperSoph_WD
  15. Hi again, @choppeduppork! I see what you want now. Ok then, I guess a migration software might be useful to you. I don't know if you've checked this one out yet, but I've used the cloning software of Acronis and I was pretty satisfied with it. They also have a migration software: http://www.acronis.com/en-us/personal/migration-software/ However, I'd definitely support you on the backup before doing any kind of data transfer and I hope you find what you are looking for. Hope this helps. Good luck! SuperSoph_WD
