My sony computer, which still works well, is about 10 years old and I think I should begin the process of updating!
I need two hard drives (SATA?) and could do with suggestions about one which will be as reliable as my present one.
Also, I have a USB drive, which I use to back up every week using Acronis! I wonder whether the new computer would recognise the data on that and allow me to copy files my across. I do realise I will have to re-install programs but would like to continue my backups.
Does anyone know if the new deives will do that and, I expect I shall opt for Windows 7 and have some reservations about using Acronis because I believe I saw something about it not being compatable to that OS.
To be honest I would run them in tandem until I was used to the new one. But which one is the question.
I note from a previous enquiry that Couger would be a good choice, and I have already looked at their site.
However, building a new one from scratch requires a knowledge of each component and I feel I might make the wrong choice for compatability. I MIGHT telephone them after I have exhausted everyone's patience on this page but the worry would be the same.
A bog-standard computer might be better for me!
