Hi Everybody, Well, the inevitable seems to be days away. I have faithfully being using "Paragon Backup and Recovery™ 12" on a Western Digital HDD that is failing. That drive is a WDC-WD10EADS-22M2B0 SCSI a whole terrabyte So I need to replace the dying drive with an entirely new HDD and have several thoughts about that. I hope someone will give me their time and show me the right direction to go. my questions deal with the restore process: Does the new drive need to be the exactly the same as the defective HDD? (Imean model-number for model-number) Can I replace with a different HDD? ( say an even larger one) If this isn't going to be a "Plug & Play" replacement, where can I find step-by-step instructions? Many Many thanks, Paul btw: I do have a boot-able Paragone disk for the restore and have used it on the same HDD several times.
