Please recommend best solution: Clone and replace WD Hard Drive?  If so, what is recommended WD replacement model?

 

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Your current disk-drive is 1000 GB.  So, any 1000 GB or 2000 GB drive will work, without any worries.

Anything larger might have an issue, if the motherboard is "older".

 

Note that WD offers a download of free "disk-cloning" software, as long as either the "source" or the "target" disk-drive was manufactured by WD.

 

How "full" is your current drive?  Buy a new hard-drive, and backup all your data/files/music/pictures/bookmarks to it,

while your current disk-drive is still working OK.  Or, "clone" your current disk-drive to the new drive.

 

If the disk-drive is still under warranty from WD, WD will replace it.  You might have to pay for shipping it to WD.

 

If the disk-drive is out-of-warranty, WD sometimes has a "customer loyalty" program.

You tell WD the serial-number of the drive, and you get a discount on theh purchase of a new disk-drive from WD's online-store, and you don't have to return your current disk-drive.
