I just got the ASUS EeePC 1015PEM. It doesn't come with a recovery disk like my old EeePC did - which makes sense, since it doesn't have a disk drive. (I do, however, have an external disk drive that I got for the old EeePC.) I figured I could back it up to an external hard drive like (I backed up) my 15 in. ASUS laptop, but there's a little booklet with it, "ASUS EeePC Technical Updates", and it says that I need a USB storage device larger than 16GB, that doesn't have any other files on it, because they will be erased. That means a new external hard drive or a 32GB flash drive, an extra expense. Why don't they tell you this when you're shopping for a computer? I probably would have gotten it anyway, but at least I could have gotten a flash drive at the same time. What I want to know is, is there any way I can back it up on my external hard drive without erasing everything on it? And if there is, could you please keep the instructions simple? Thanks!
