I've recently upgraded to a 1.5TB external hard drive for video production work, which has left me with a 500GB drive which is no longer needed.
I'm thinking of using it as a backup. Is Windows backup sufficient? Or should I be looking at specialist software?
Also, I'm probably just going to back up files; is there any reason for me to do an image backup of Windows, or would that just take up extra space? I understand that I would have to reinstall Windows should anything go wrong with my system then, but I do have recovery software pre-installed by the manufacturer. Is this sufficient?
