Evidently I blew my hard drive when I installed a web cam. Now I can't seem to find a replacement hard drive for my z61t through Lenovo online or phone service. Does anyone have any tips on where I can find a replacement? I'm so discouraged -- I should have bought a warranty but thought they should guarantee it longer than 1 year so on principle I held out. Now I am 2 months past warranty and this is where my principles got me!!! I am a fifty-something technophobe -- can any of you youngsters help me?!?!

Welcome to the forum!
At today's low prices for SATA drives, this would be my pick:
I have it in my T60p and love it...
Hope this helps.

Hello to everybody,
I need to upgrade my HDD to higher capacity one (and faster). So my configuration is IBM Z60M - 2529 HFG. Currently I have 80GB 5400 rpm. So I plan to change it to 200GB or higher with 16 MB cash and 7200 rpm. The real problem I'm expecting to face is how to transfer the hidden recovery partiotion to the new HDD if there some constraint concerning that, please give feedback.
Thanks in advance!

You will need an adapter to connect the new hard drive via USB.
Use Easeus Disk Copy. It will copy the entire hard drive, sector-to-sector, to the new hard drive. This includes the recovery/hidden partition. Nothing will be changed/modified. Then you can create a new partition to use the remainder of unallocated space.

I have not heard of such a thing.
I would think if having programs on "D" while Windows is on "C", when using programs the heads would be moving more often. This would also happen with a severely fragmented hard drive. This wear and tear would be miniscule, IMO. Hard drives have mechanical components which are bound to fail. I personally use two partitions. "C" for Windows [about 80GB] and the reamaining space as "D" for personal data. This has worked for me greatly as I constantly am formatting/installing/reinstalling different operating systems on drive "C".
