I've received a lot of help over the past few days from PC Advisor...Many many thanks. Ok, maybe a last question; I have a Maxtor 300gb external drive which works well. But, as there is no fan cooling this hard drive, is it ok to leave hard drive running full time? If not, is this external hard drive more or less a large backup device? Thanks,
