Windows 7: Back up 2 computers on 1 USB hard drive?

Hi Brink,
"It's up to you for the backup schedule, but you could manually back them up whenever you like. This way when one is finished, you could connect the drive to the other PC and back it up as well. "

Good suggestion, I will automatically back up the Desktop, switch cable and do the Laptop since it sits idle 90% of the time.

I appreciate your patience and hope your mind stays sharp during your Senior years.

Thanks,
Don

You're most welcome Don.

I don't about that. My mind is already fuzzy at times. LOL
