But you must realize i am computer handicapped... :thumbsup:
I looked at the backup program in xp, I got confuse. :flowers:
I am in need of a backup program because I got some extra programs on my startup
and i was advised to do a backup and then disable one or two of the programs, and then see how the laptop
runs for a couple days. then do the same until I have disable the all the programs.
SO, I would like to find a program that is easy, and will work with my external drive.

I use Cobian Backup, for file backups.
Fairly easy to use, and freeware.
Once everything is set up, it's just a matter of clicking a button, to run a backup.
