    I have been advised that it might be more advantageous for me to back up my

    files on an external hard drive instead of on 5 or 6 DVD's. How do I go

    about determining the capacity, quality and type of hardware needed? Can

    someone point me in the right direction/



    Many Thanks!

    Most systems have USB ports.......buy an External HD in a case with a USB

    connection.

    The amount of Data that you back up determines the size of the

    drive.......or just buy the

    largest you can afford.
