As hard drive capacities increase, the power required to run those drives increases as well. WD Caviar Green drives make it possible for energy-conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability, and energy conservation.
Any ideas? I don't want to return the SSD, I want to get it to work.
I like to play around with my computer in a way that's not exactly easy on hard drives.
Any advice/experience that might be relevant?
Thanks for contacting us.
1. The new SSD only requires to be initialized prior to using or cloning. A guide on how to initialize can be found here.
2, I believe the computer will be unaware of the change if you use the EaseUS todo back up, however, I am not super familiar with this back up software and that might be more of a question for their forum.
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
