It seemed to run really well, but there seemed quite a bit of disk activity I think, when running Sierra, but I'm not 100% sure really, and it looks like it is the hard disk that has gone faulty!

So yes, i'm fine with how it ran before, but not fine if I'm shortening the life of the hard disk. And it has not been running extensively as i describe above for the last 2.5 years, but I have started trading again very recently and using Sierra again and do want to vastly increase my use and workload on the system with Sierra from now on.

Not using the PC for much else, so now unsure how a second hard disk plus SSD would help, especially if Sierra is not after all stressing the hard disk (you say it using RAM and CPU mostly).

I also thought that one of the beauties of Sierra was that it was not demanding on systems as some other charting and trading platforms, and so didnt really need a high spec.

Thanks again for your help! Much appreciated
