Which External hard Drive?

  cocteau48 12:16 03 Jan 2007

I am considering buying an external hard drive in order to back up my system and program files. It will not be used for the mass storage of media files so I reckon that it does not have to have a large capacity - or are low capacity ones a false economy?
Any recommendations would be very welcome - and also what software am I going to need?
