I'm going to take my existing 60GB HDD which I use for backup & put it into an external caddy & install a new 120 GB HDD in its place in the tower. I've done this before but for the life of me I cannot remember if there is anything I have to do re removing items etc. in add & remove hardware.
Thanks

Nothing like that is necessary if they are regular ide drives - take it out, replace it and format the new one when installed.

To see the new one, you may need to go into disk management

right click my computer

Thanks DS. The fact that I don't have to do anything is probably the reason why I couldn't remember what to do.
