Can an external backup drive pick up virus from an infected PC?

Only way is to connect to old PC and scan for virus on all drives

Do not connect external drive until you know it is clean. What virus ? what antivirus program?

have ou tried scanning with one of the online virus scanners like hitman Pro?
