1 TB drive is enough to start with the OS and a few games. However, later if you may have a requirement for more storage you can anytime add and upgrade your system with the new SSD or HDD storage device.

Here, I too agree with @Koojo, Simply plug in your SSD, assign a drive name & your games are ready to use. Just make sure that your SSD which is having your OS set as a boot drive and the one having games in it should NOT be set as a boot drive. I will also suggest you to keep a backup of your critical data before migrating your drives from one PC another so that in case of any data loss situation you're safely backed up with your data.

Upgrading your system from traditional HDD to modern SSD is one of the best things you do with your system. And the easiest way is to physically install it, connect the right cables, and reinstall Windows from scratch. But when you don’t want to deal with setting up Windows and wants to get all of your critical data, files and folders on a new SSD drive then it might be challenging. Here, I suggest you to check out the below blog for better understanding of the methods to migrate your OS from HDD to new SSD - https://www.stellarinfo.com/blog/how-to-migrate-windows-10-from-old-hdd-to-ssd/

You can try replacing the SATA cables with the new ones to check if it detects your internal drive because sometimes old SATA cables also being the reason for unresponsive or undetected internal hard drive.

If that does does not work then you can try connecting your internal drive as an external drive via USB connector as it will use an entirely separate execution path to access the drive. Hopefully, it will detect your internal drive.

If still there is no cure for this problem then I suggest you to check out the below blog: https://www.stellarinfo.com/blog/how-to-fix-not-responding-hard-drive/

Well, there might be chances that there is some technical issue with your drive. Maybe it is corrupted or having some other glitch. In that case, I suggest you to have word with the customer support of the SSD drive company.

Well, there can be 2 scenarios:

A. Your Drive is attached, but undetected or unreadable. There might be chances that your drive is having an unsupported file system or it may have bad sectors.

In this scenario,

• Right click on “This PC”, select Manage. • Then, in the dialogue box that opens, Select Disk Management from the left side panel (last option).

There, look below the white portion, you will find a representation of the Disks connected. If it is shown there.

• Right Click on your SSD, Format the drive and assign a drive letter to it.

Then wait a few seconds and it will be shown in the Drives panel.

B. Your drive may not be attached properly.

Check your connections in this case. When shown in Disk Management, follow the above procedure.

If you’re looking for best possible ways to clone or move your HDD data to SSD then I recommend you to check out this blog: https://www.stellarinfo.com/blog/how-to-migrate-windows-10-from-old-hdd-to-ssd/

Comment reply on Forum Topic "HDD weird noises"

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

Normally, the computer storage drives are quiet and steady, but in case of any physical damages or logical corruption, they can begin to make noise. There are numbers of different hard drive clicking sounds with different reasons. Some type of clicking noise are due to software or driver issues, some of them due to hardware issues, and sometimes due to mechanical faults of the hard drive.

Most of the times there are 4 probable causes for clicking noise of a hard drive:

  1. The insufficient power supply is a very common cause of noise in the hard drive. It mostly happens when you have connected multiple devices (including the HDD) to a single port.
  2. Physical depreciation of the hard drive which results from either simple issues or damage such as a physical shock or trauma.
  3. A hard drive may be failed due to the faulty data cables, or incorrect drivers installed.
  4. A crashed hard drive.

Subsequent fixes people have used to overcome the issue are:

  1. Check whether the hard drive is getting enough power or not. You can do it by plugging the power adapter directly into the power supply.
  2. Replace the data cable with the new one and turn on the drive. Now, if it does not make any noise, then the data cable might be faulty.
  3. In case the drive still makes noises, then there is a high possibility the drive is failing and needs to be replaced.

If the problem still persists, then I suggest you to contact the customer support of Amazon and get the replacement done.

Both HDD's & SSD's are an electronic product & both are equally uncertain in life.

One can't say why & when their drive may stop working. However, if somebody wants to buy any new external drive WD & Seagate are his first preferences.

And, lastly if one has a habit of keeping backup of his/her data then there is no point of being worried about any data loss situation.

USB flash drives or SD Cards are mainly used for transferring data from one device to another but aren't ideal for backing up or storage of data because the devices have a substantial chance of getting broken or failing. Flash drives / Pen drives / SD Cards can die or stop working when device hardware components fail.

In that case, it is not a good idea to store your important data in flash drives or memory cards for the long term. It’s always better to have a complete data backup in another Hard drive & if you’re backed up with any data recovery software like Stellar Data Recovery then it’s a plus point & win-win situation for you in case if there is any data loss scenario.

But be careful while changing the drive from one system to another because sometimes shifting drive from one system to another may cause a data loss scenario. If you have the backup then it’s great otherwise you need a data recovery software to get back your deleted or lost data.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is it the RAM?"

  • 10 months ago

If your system slows down while playing games, then you must install the latest drivers for your motherboard and Graphics card. When you are running your game on your system, the best practice is to stop the programs running on the background such as anti-virus scanners. Also, timely check for overheating of your system.

However, if the above solution doesn’t works for you, then you should make sure that your system meets the minimum requirements for running the game. If you find that the specs are too high for your system, then you can try to reduce texture details, shadows, and graphics in the game's settings.

If you still find that the issue occurs, my advice is adding more RAM to your PC to increase its processing abilities.

Also, you can go through https://www.techlicious.com/tip/reasons-why-your-computer-is-slow/ to understand other reasons for system slow.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What exactly does raid do?"

  • 28 months ago
  • 1 point

First of all, you must understand what RAID is? RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks. This data storage virtualization technology is used for storing data by combining the multiple hard drives in a single logical unit for data redundancy, improvement in the performance, etc. The most common RAID are RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10. Apart from these, there are different standard types of RAID levels existing such as RAID 1, RAID 2, RAID 3, RAID 4, RAID 01(RAID 0+1), RAID 03(RAID 0+3), and RAID 50(RAID 5+0).

Sometimes, some issue happens with the RAID which results in the data loss problem. So, to avoid such issues, there are data recovery companies available which provide you with the option for RAID data recovery Software and the Services.

One software which I know pretty well is Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery – Tech(available at https://www.stellarinfo.com/windows-raid-recovery.php). This software has been used by my brother in his company. My brother told me about its impressive features, and I felt them amazing.

It’s better to go for a RAID data recovery software as data recovery services charges quite high. To avoid such cases, my advice is always to take a backup of your data though you are not properly aware of these RAID hard drive’s levels.

Cheers!

Hi Munny_D_Oz,

Before your hard drive or SSD dies, the very first thing to save your data is to keep multiple backups of your valuable data and keep them at the safe and various places.

But, if you are unable to do so and your hard drive or SSD dies, then you have to give money to the Data Recovery Service Centre. It might become costlier, so it is always advisable to go for a Data Backup.

Good Luck!

‘Clicking Noise’ in the hard drive is one of the major issues in the hard drive… It itself arises from the unexpected movement of the disk’s read-write actuator. It happens when the drive repeatedly tries to recover from one or more errors. It symbolizes that your hard drive has crashed or failed.

There are several other reasons for the Clicking Noise such as i) The Hard drive may be on non-level surface. ii) The hard drive heads hitting the internal head stop. iii) Highly fragmented hard drives. iv) Power saving settings. v) Hard drive platter issues.

In case, if you have an external hard drive, it may be due to loose connection, or due to the faulty power adapter or cables.

You can analyse and work on the above-mentioned things to resolve your issue.

You can also use Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery – Professional’, available at http://www.stellarinfo.com/partition-recovery-software.php, it will help you in cloning your drive and the best thing is that it supports on Windows 10 also.
