Hi all
I have a toshiba satelite pro which has started being very slow I know there is a lot of junk on the hard drive which I am going to dump however how to I go about making a copy of my hard drive contents I intend to do a complete format and re-install XP but just in case it goes pear shaped I would like to be able to reinstae everthing as was so to speak also as I have never "been inside" this machine can I add memory or indeed fit a bigger HD
