Additional hard disk
My sisters have a new hard drive now and since they don't need this old Maxtor with 15GB I have put it in my computer, at least to play with it and for some data that's on it. Extra space can't hurt either.
It's apparently much older though (and noisier) than my primary disk (which is set as master) so I'm wondering if that can in any weird way affect the performance of another disk and the system overall?
What if, for example, that old one breaks and my system gets frozen in the meantime? Could that somehow add some damage to the newer one too?
I would guess not, but I'm not too much of a hardware expert so second opinion would be welcome.
