Introduction

Make sure that you handle your new hard drive with care. Dropping it could completely destroy the device. Also make sure that when you are working on anything on the inside of the laptop avoid static friction as much as possible. Replacing your smaller hard drive with a hard drive with a larger memory will give you more memory on your laptop and can help if you are running low on space.
