    Hmm.. OK. (gonna try to be informative as best I can, so please don't be overly offended). Then it's considered worn extremely fast (FYI).. i.e, like running an engine at redline RPMs, nearly its entire operating existence. So, that being said: that HDD isn't really worth what you're asking. Not when there's other ones with better reliability for that price or cheaper. Another Note: I've had nothing but issues outta Seagate, across all 4 laptop I've owned over the years. And YES, Samsung HDDs are made by Seagate as well. Also,w that version HDD had excessive failure dates due to the SSD portion being in the first part the HDD and dying, which blocked access to the rest of the HDD. My advice? Keep it and use that HDD for mass storage/external HDD for just file storage

    Upgraded my PC to run both an SSD and HDD.t Using a 1Tb SSD for the /, Home (environment/compiling ROMs) & Swap. Partitioned the HDD for EXT4 (Like a Home2, keep unmodified files like finished ROMs and trees, etc) and Win10 (dualboot, cuz some things just refuse to speak with Linux on occasion).

    Now I find myself in a similar situation, but I plan to replace the old hard drive with a new one. What to do with the old disk if Windows has problems with the hard disk? Can I sell it? I have already looked at the new model.

    Depening how old and how much usage it had during its lifetime you can decide the price its worth based on its condition.

    When I price something for sale, I'll generally search ebay listings and filter the results to show Completed Items. Then I look at the average sale prices (green = sold, red = didn't sell) and base my price on that. And yes, sometimes it's depressing how quickly good tech devalues.
