I will be upgrading to Windows 7 next month so I have a question about backups.
I have never used anything but the normal procedure for making backups
and I accidently ran across this Acronis True Image 2010. I went to their
website and read about it and it comes with a price of $50.
They were not very specific on what type of external storage is needed so
that is my question to the group.
I will most likely only use this True Image + ??? external storage 1 or 2
times so does the cost of both items justify the usage.

In Acronis, you can use whatever storage you want, external or external, as long as it has sufficient space. If you're only going to use it once or twice, you may want to consider using a free program, like this.
