External Hard Drives

Thread starter #1
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.
