Is this a fairly easy process or should I leave this up to the professionals? 40gb just isnt cutting it, running out of space. The 250gb for $179 seems like a good deal. Im assuming I will have to reload the atv flash all over again after it comes back right? I have XBMC and my library with over 700 movies, all the imdb data and posters, will I have to redo all of that if i reload the atv flash and xbmc?
Generally it depends on how techie you are. Professional service is always good and $180 is not a bad price at all. However if you decide to do it yourself, a few links:
Just be aware that you could rip a cable, type a command wrong, accidentally cause a spark on a component. Of course this is a risk for any computer repair, I’ve fixed Macs for many years and all of this has happened to me. Just be careful if you do it yourself.
Also if you do a complete copy of the 40GB drive and are able to keep the exact copy of the image put onto the new drive, you shouldn’t have to redo the applications.
