The new Hard Drive I installed was the following: 1.0TB Seagate Barracuda 3.5 inch, SATA 6.0Gb-s, 7200RPM internal hard drive. 2 Y Qty: 1 $89.99 Is this a compliant hard drive to use? Or must I order a different one and replace once again? If I need to replace, please send me a link with the exact Hard Drive I will need. Thank You once again.
