Identify harddrive type

By firefox5000 ·
How can can i find out the details about my harddrive, if it is Sata or Sata 2 and if it's 2.5 or 3.5 size.
If i have a Sata drive can i plug a Sata 2 into my computer using the same interface as for a Sata drive?
Is there any software that gives advance info about these details?

Quite simple really

If you have a Desktop computer it has 3.5 inch Drives. The size listed is the size of the platters inside the HDD.

If you have a NB it has a 2.5 inch Drive.

The main difference is in the power that the different size drives use the desktop drive runs on 12 V DC where as the NB Drive runs on 5 V DC.

If i have a Sata drive can i plug a Sata 2 into my computer using the same interface as for a Sata drive?

Yes you can.

Is there any software that gives advance info about these details?

Not that I'm aware of but then again it's not necessary anyway.
