I am new to computing (took it up when I retired!) and am not sure how to back up the entire system onto an external hard drive. I want to be able to boot from the external drive if main drive fails. Any suggestions would be appreciated
My preference would be for Norton Ghost: click here for a guide.
You would NOT be able to boot from the external drive. USB and Firewire will not be recognised until Windows loads but if your main drive has failed, no Windows.
