Updating fedlog on hard drive
However, modern motherboards may offer various connection options for drives, and if yours offers PATA (Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment) and SATA (Serial ATA) connectors, you first have to choose the most suitable drive.
Complications can then arise if you're replacing your Windows drive, as you may also have to change BIOS settings, especially if you're moving from PATA to SATA, and the various options can vary considerably depending on whether you're still running Windows 98/ME as opposed to Windows 2000/XP, or if you're attempting to run both in a multi-boot setup.
However, I've mounted the sleeves at the bottom front of my PC's case, where they sit in the incoming cool airflow from the two front intake fans, which probably explains things.
I'm certainly not complaining, as I don't now have to invest in new drive silencers.
I hadn't planned to buy new hard drives, but had to respond quickly when I experienced problems with my existing Windows drive.
Twice this month I booted up my PC and encountered 'bad sector' faults.
This is exactly the scenario I faced this month — replacing two PATA drives, containing four Windows partitions and a further six data partitions, with two new SATA drives.FED LOG also provides service unique data for additional search capabilities.Every Federal Agency in the USA has access to the Federal Logistics Database (FEDLOG) and can use it to manage their procurement and suppyl chain.You don't have to enable each drive's Smart Monitoring mode in the BIOS to do this, either (most builders disable Smart Monitoring mode, as it imposes a tiny extra overhead during data transfers).I was particularly interested in temperature monitoring because my two new Seagate Barracuda SATA hard drives run hotter than the previous PATA versions, and I was unsure whether or not to fit them into my existing Silent Drive sleeves for fear of overheating.
