Default Upgrading HDD on the SFF Optiplex 745

Currently I have a Dell Optiplex 745 and I'm looking to upgrade the HDD. I've been looking at the tech specs for the SFF and I noticed that it supports the 7200RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 250GB HDD.

Before spending £40 on the HDD has anyone else upgraded the HDD on the Dell Optiplex 745 SFF?

Welcome to Tech-Forums, xjamie!!!

It's just like upgrading the HDD on any other computer. Do you have the recovery/restore discs for the Dell? Reason being that you would have to reinstall the OS on to the new HDD.

Unless he images the old drive over to the new drive with CloneZilla or something similar.
