    Happy NEW Mia Noi, Stamp !! You can keep your HD and put it in your DVD drive. Would you like to do that now you can clone your old drive on the new SSDif all is running fine with Macrium Reflect.

    Here's a free and I guess the best program called Macrium Reflect.

    Macrium Reflect Free

    Ein Gutes Neues Jahr..............

    Cheers, sirchai. Hadn't heard about the HDD enclosure. Looked it up at JIB and the caddy costs about 700 THB. Guess it'll be a 120 GB SSD and my current 1 TB HDD then.

    I'll replace the whirring drive in my now old Asus netbook when I get home with an SSD and put the whir drive into an enclosure. I think. I have to doctor the drives to do this on the Asus, but, hey, I enjoy a learning experience.

    I know I've said it before, but there is another way to speed up your computer: Linux.

    I have a green light to switch our office PC from Win 7 to a dual boot with Ubuntu Kylin.

    P.S. I've lost a drive to dropping the netbook a few times. That's indeed another selling point.
