My 320 internal is getting full up, plus I want to back the files up, plus I want to be able to use files no my laptop and PC
- for this reason I have all my data files on a 2TB external which I can plug into PC or Laptop.
I want to back up my 80B windows drive so that if anything goes wrong I can do a fresh install of windows.
My spare hard drives are:
20GB internal (IDE)
40GB internal (SATA)
80GB internal (IDE)
the 20GB and 40 GB hard drives are too small to back up windows
I wanted to keep the other 80GB as a spare incase my windows7 80GB dies
Therefore I thought i could back up windows on my 2TB external
But I still want to mainly use my 2TB external for linking my files to my laptop
I think this is probably my best option?
