Power Drive

PC Remodel

Installing a drive isn't always easy, but it's within the average entrepreneur's capabilities because it doesn't require any special tools. Drive kits usually include everything you need: mounting accessories, user manual and the software for configuring the drive to your system. If you're only installing one drive or are pinching pennies, you might want to take a swing at it. If the task goes well, a drive can be installed in under an hour.

But there's always a chance not everything will go smoothly. So if you'd rather leave the job to someone else, check with your local computer store or the company from which you bought the equipment for a professional to take care of it. For example, CompUSA charges a minimum of $70 to install one drive at its store and a minimum of $120 to do so at your business. Given the cost, you should prevent a repeat of the experience by installing the highest-capacity drive you can afford.
