Which External Hard Drive?

  tighmor 14:47 12 Jan 2006

I want to be able to do back up the full Disk on two machines to an external drive.

Machine 1 is 40 Gig and machine 2 is 80gig

Want the backups to be quick and simple to do.

Want to be able to make subsequent backups of just the files that have changed.

Do not see any reviews so hope someone can help.

If you want to back up everything including Windows you will need extra software as well, something like Norton Ghost.

Get a 'caddy' - a USB case to take a Seagate or Maxtor hard drive. Plug it in, format it and away you go.
XP Pro has a built-in backup utility which will allow you to do a full system backup which can be used to restore your OS in case of failure via the Restore Consol (it's available in XP home but it's 'hidden').
For incremental back-ups of personal files try EZ Backitup, a free download or on many PCA discs.
