Shark,

We can't help you until you actually ask a question about the hard drive, and give us some details about it.

A hard disk drive (HDD) is a data storage device used for storing and retrieving digital information using rapidly rotating discs (platters) coated with magnetic material. An HDD retains its data even when powered off. Data is read in a random-access manner, meaning individual blocks of data can be stored or retrieved in any order rather than just sequentially. An HDD consists of one or more rigid ("hard") rapidly rotating discs (platters) with magnetic heads arranged on a moving actuator arm to read and write data to the surfaces.

Can we do anything else for you?

Wow, it took 8 posts to tell him to ask us the question
I'm guessing that he's jumping between different forums and asking about which one is the best? That could be problematic when we're solving the problem :P
