    I'm sorry if this has been answered before, I did try searching several different ways and found no help. I recently purchased HDadvance and all the required components... I plan to fill the hard drive up fairly quickly and then would like to purchase another hard drive. I figure I'll get another Maxtor as this one seems to work great. My only question is... what's the difference between 3.5" and 3.5" X 1/3H ? Which will fit, or will they both?

    3.5 inch. I have found that nothing bigger than a 120gig will work. Anything bigger has major bugs.

    Yes I realize that 120's are the largets that version 1.0 will support, and that version 2.0 supports up to 200. But that's not physical size :p

    So you're saying that 3.5"X1/3H won't fit? what does the X1/3H mean anyways? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I have honestly never tried anything but a 3 1/2 inch drive. Maybe someone else will know.

    i dunno about this "X1/3H " means, i will tell yall something baout big drives though, in my experience, they tend to crash alot, so even though, hd advance 2.0 supports up to 200gb, stay away from those big drives
