Hi Complete novice. I have a pc with small hard drive size. When i double click 'my computer' & right click 'c-disk' & click on properties, i get the pie chart of what i assume is the capacity of my c-drive.
It says 7.534.321.664 bytes 7.01 GB
This i assume is quite small, but i don't download music or film, i just use it for emails, the net & some mpegs & college files, the pie chart shows approx half full.
Ok, so i want to back this all up on CD. What kind of CD do i need for my ROM drive, how large a space should the CD have as i hear there are many & how do i do it! Help appreciated Gaz
You can't do backups using a ROM drive - you require a rewriter.
As a DVD rewriter is only about £5 more than a CD rewriter and can hold up to 8.5GB according to features and type of DVD blank media used against the 700MB of a CD-R or CD-RW disk, there's little really to consider...:-)
What operating system are you using because I suspect with such a small HD it is not an up to date one in which case one of the ways to save or back-up would be an external hard drive but most of these use USB.
Ok, i want to save my stuff, maybe i got it wrong, i just heard i can save my stuff, i don't want no reader or writer. I installed wanadoo with a disk in the front! Ok, i use Windows Xp Pro now what disk(s) should i get to save my stuff & how do i do it! Regards
