Is there any simple way to do this?
I cannot get a 'clean' (IMHO) backup because the incremental backups keep stopping at specific spots. I have removed the offending software, but then another spot takes its place. So, without a competent backup, I am worried about starting the reformat. I am looking at the Cobian Backup Software and hope that might help.
Could I attach another hard drive or thumb drive, move everything there, reformat the original and move the data back? That sounds so simple that there must be a catch.
My Vista is the Home Premium, so I don't have the 'full back up/restore option.'
You all have been so helpful for me in other ways, I do appreciate any information,
Best wishes to you and yours, Pat - Confused in California
