Thanks Guy's for your replys ....
being a computer Newbie, I keep reading ..Back it up. Back it up !!, and a friend has just lost all his
info as his HDD packed up working , So I would like to keep an image of my system , just in case ..?
and ive been told the best way to do that is by transfering every thing on to an External HDD...?
Ive just noticed that this computer has a FireWire connection, so would it be best for me to buy an external HDD with Firewire capability , or just use one with a USB connection..? also would I need to get some extra new software to enable me to transfer info from my computer to the new external HDD ..?
I don't really know which type of external HDD to get or its size ( this computer has a 250 GB HDD )
so any comments / advice on the above would be most welcome
Thanks again .........Mypenry
