I'm still using an old desktop computer I built many years ago and upgraded to W10 from a WXP to W8.1 Pro promotion (~2014?). It seems to be bit a bit slow starting up so I'm thinking that doing a clean re installation of Windows 10 couldn't hurt. I currently have 2 hard drives: 160 GB c: (OS) and 500 GB d: (data). My d: drive is slowly running out of space (48.7 GB free of 465 GB) so I thought I would buy a 1TB drive to use as my d: drive and move the 500 GB drive to be my c: drive. For higher reliability, I thought I would get a 1TB NAS drive and found a Seagate Ironwolf on clearance. Seagate Presales Support recommended the current model. Is there any reason to be concerned about a superseded but brand new NAS hard drive?
