My computer has a 1TB internal hard drive and then I have two identical 1TB external USB drives for backups and additional space. In the beginning when we had another computer we backed up our C: drive to the x:drive and the x: drive to the y: drive with some sort of software. Over a year ago we got a new computer and we were really busy and never dealt with the back up . I haven't lost anything but I really need to do some work on our storage situation.
So here is where I need your help.
1. I need some sort of software that will help me sort out what is where and what is duplicated. Get is all in one place again so I can start backing up again. Does that exist? My X:drive is getting very full. My husband does a lot of photography and we are overflowing with photos. Maybe I even need more space on a new drive but for now I just need to make sure I am not storing a bunch of junk. Any advice will be appreciated. I know this sounds like a mess because it is...
2. Second I need some sort of really good but hopeful not too expensive software that will do a really good reliable backup. Something simple would be good. What I need is software that is really intelligent so that it looks at the last backup and only backs up what is new...right? Anyway any advice is great.
3. If we decide to add more hardware anyone have any advice on reasonably priced big drives that work well and last. I know I can post this in Hardware but it sort of goes with this post.
