Hi All, thanks for reading. I want to buy an external HD 1tb in size. I will be using it purely for backing up my main drive, i.e. Programs i installed, folders with allsorts them (.doc .bmp .jpeg etc) zip files, full working programs that i want to keep set up like i have them, i.e Paintshop Pro 9, example, the tool bar takes forever to set up with the icons you want so if i can just copy the whole drive it would be there in any eventuallity of formatting and i wont neet to do all the sorting out again lol So basically i want an external drive that i can copy my whole "c" drive to and it is reliable. I am looking at spending around the £100 - £120 mark. Thanks for any ideas, Kindest regards, Vale.
