i will tell you now, then later fill out my specs (:
okay, im about to right a novel here.
Heres my story.
i downloaded Windows 7 Build 7100 and had my laptop dual booted with Vista home basic and Windows 7. I mostly used Windows 7 full time, but i noticed that Vista SP2 came out so i downloaded it and stuff. but when i restarted my computer my theme was stuck in classic mode, and my prefrences would crash when ever i tryed opening it. (this was from Vistaglazz, because at the time it did not support Vista SP2) so i tryed to do a system restore from when i using SP1 but something happened and now Vista won't boot up. It just gets stuck at the screen saying "please wait...". i went on the brother/sister site of this site (vistax64.com) and over there they said i had to do a clean install of vista. so thats basicly why i need to back up my files.
i have 120gb of files to backup. but i like to play games and have lots of movies and other stuff, so thats why i want 500Gb.
i hope thats more then enough info (:
if not, then let me know
i have a dell inspiron 1521
