Having had a bit of a scare this morning having left my pc running a virus check last night, my daughter "accidently" switched it off with the power switch for some time I was unable to get it to boot up again. I was wondering can I copy everything to an external hard drive for insurance if it happens again? Win XP Pro.

yes you can back up everything to an external HD.
No Problem

Use Acronis to back up the OS, otherwise you might also come a cropper. ITS THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD. David
