I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. As of right now I am using the Backup and Restore provided by Windows 7 to automatically back up and create system images of my internal C hard drive. My computer HD size is 1 TB and as of right now I have used up 555 GB of space. I am backing up to a 2 TB Western Digital Element Desktop HD. The WD External HD still has 743 GB free space left on there.
Anyways my question is this. Can I back up my desktop HD and an external HD using windows 7's Backup and Restore to ANOTHER external HD? What I want to do is buy another 1 or 2 TB Western Digital external HD and move all my photos from my desktop's HD into the new external HD for storage instead of letting it take up space on my desktop. And then use my original 2TB WD HD that I've already been using to back up my Desktop HD and my new External HD that only has my photos on there. Not sure if that makes sense.
A little about myself. I am a freelance photographer... though I am good at taking photos and other artistic elements, I am not a big tech person. I tried to look up my question on google but I'm not finding any sites or forums that have what I'm asking. Maybe I'm wording it wrong but I thought I would ask here. I am not really sure what is the best way to back up all my photos for my clients. So any suggestions other than the one I have planned to do is welcome. Also keep in mind I'm not a big time commercial photographer so I don't need the really expensive stuff. I know some commercial photogs have hard drives backing up hard drives x10 with servers and off site facilities in case of fire and such.. I don't need anything at that level right now. Anything that works and also doesn't cost too much is fine. Thanks!
