    11 partitions?! ffs Konica...

    Anyways, I never tried cloning a disk with that many partitions, but should be possible to automate.

    I actually want to try this now

    I know!! 11 partitions is ridiculous.

    The only ones I've messed with are the HDD's on the C253 series. We kept having multiple failures at a customer that had HORRIFIC power problems and wouldn't fix it. So, they kept calling saying their machine was locked up and the issue was always a corrupted HDD. After paying for more than one (they had a contract but we paid for the first couple replacements), I started formatting their corrupted drives exactly like what the C253 would format it from the machine but it was just three partitions. I would do the format on a windows PC. Then we would just keep one on hand and swap it out, reformat the corrupt one, repeat. I was hoping the newer machines would be similar.

    Let us know how it goes when you try it!!

    Yeah I cannot think of good a reason for so many. I want to try it, but I am not going out of my way to do it either.

    Very technically a SSD has moving states so does have moving parts

    Anyways, it is fairly common knowledge that HDDs have been the slowest component of just about any computer system for some time. The problem is that I just said a MFP with no SSD (albeit a slow Fiery) outperforms a more modern MFP with a significantly faster HDD (i.e., sata interface). In fine, yes is it an upgrade. Will it make a noticeable difference: I'm not so sure.

    It's a usual practice for copy machine OS installs, most are Linux, to create multiple partitions to sandbox storage space for various reasons/ functions, then that partition when it is finished being used for whatever purpose can be securely erased.Has anyone replaced the standard hdd with the new ssd harddrives

    about 20 of my HDDs are from copiers, i take them home and delete endless partitions then make a single one and backup kids pics, documents and movies and store it on a shelf for disaster recovery.

    Haha, are you the one that converted a fiery to a FTP server too? Don't forget to take the neodymium magnets out of the HDDs when they crap out too!

    Re: Has anyone replaced the standard hdd with the new ssd harddrives

    Not related to machines in question,

    But i run a 2.5 ide to ssd adapter in my c253. I use a 64gb kingston ssd in that and its flawless.

    I did have to do physical format of course.

    I now have a c284 at home so will try that at some stage too. (Its hdd is failing anyway)
    If at first you don't succeed, try the way I told you how to do it in the first place.

    I tried to insert an iSeries SSD on a computer. It is also full of partitions and some I have not been able to recover them. On iSeries I have seen that recent firmware updates allow you to install 1TB SSD EM-908
