I was going through my list of things to remove and noticed that there was microsoft.net framework 1.0, with hotfixes 2.0 with hotfixes and also Microsoft Silverlight? I didn't recognize these programs and so I deleted them. Now my updates icon is forever flashing in my toolbar wanting to install the latest hotfix for the framework stuff - Should I not have deleted these programs? How do I get them back if I need to? What do they do?

I would get Net.Framework as more applications are going to need this. I needed it a couple of days ago to run a hard drive diagnostic program on a friends computer. Get the latest version 3.0-

Silver Light is not needed. Shame on MS for the sneakie way they get you to install this beta software of theirs.

Thanks for your help! I'm installing it right now. What forum would it be best to post questions about adding an external hardrive?

That would be the external hardware forum. Not much to adding one. I just plugged mine into a USB port and it was good to go. Are you asking how to best transfer files to an external hard drive?

Thank you for the link Mark - it's much appreciated, as you can tell I don't know my way around very well. :thumbsup:

Tom- yes, it's the files that I want to transfer over. I purchased one and plugged it in and it's up and running fine (backup working beautifully) but the original reason I got the external hard drive was to mirror my C drive to my G drive, delete all but the program files on my C drive to open up operating space and speed things up and then save any new documents, pics, music and video to the G drive so it didn't bog down the C drive...and I don't know where to begin.

Wow. Actually tried to removed the .NET framework? No wonder you ran into trouble so quick. ^_^; Yeah, stick with .NET framework. And it's okay to drop Silverlight, if you want to. It's just a way to integrate the .NET framework into web applications. No real use for it yet.

As for the drive question, the best way is proabably just to use like a slave drive, copy over all your files into a few basic folder, like Music, Pictures, Text, whatever you feel like naming them, and keeping only the frequently used files on the main hard drive. And if you're using USB, it should practically do it itself. Once you pluge the drive in and run it, you should be able to access it through Microsoft Explorer, and from there, you can just cut and paste.
