  1. Good morning every one :) just a quick question :)

    About 3 months ago i brought a harddrive (80GB) and had it installed in my computer.. (it slowed it down a hell of a lot) anyway! im buying a new pc soon and i want to know would it be possible to remove the hard drive and use it in a caddy outside the new pc? Or is it a kind of thing like once it has been installed it cant be used on a diffrent pc :) thanks :) x

    You can use the hard drive anywhere you like, including external enclosures, toasters, handbags, video recording devices, dogs, fast-moving vehicles, Apple computers and banana trees to name a few.
