Software Backup device

  baldyx 20:12 16 Jul 2007

I want to backup my pc ( used space about 90 Gbytes ) to an external device. Please anyone recommend one taht is not so expensive but will do the job.

I am using Windows XP on Dell desktop 3000.

I would suggest something like a 360Gb External USB drive, shop around a bit and you should find one round about 60 quid or less.

Acronis ti 10 with a large external here

Skidzy , thanks.

Have looked at the spec ,my understanding is that it is only a software so I will have to buy the external device ?

Which external hard drive/device do you recommend?

My external drives are ones i have saved and used skate i know,but serves me fine.

Admans link looks a good bet and i would say pretty good from Seagate.

Yes, adman 2s' link is in fact the one I have, along with Acronis TI10.
