I would be grateful for any help on the following:
I recently bought an external hard drive with the intention of backing up my existing computer hard drive.
I though I would be able to just mirror the computer hard drive onto the external hard drive so that if the computer hard drive fails at any stage I can then use the external hard drive until I replaced the failed drive.
I also wanted any backup programme to be able to schedule itself to backup but only files that had changed since the last backup.
Now all that seemed perfectly logical and easy to me until I came to actually do it. Basically I have failed miserably and got myself very very confused. It needs to be said that I am not that clever with computers :oops:
Can anyone point me in the right direction please. Any instructions would need to be fairly simple and any software needed preferably freeware or low cost.
[U Many thanks to anyone that can help. :)
I am running Windows XP home edition SP2
Hewlett Packard Pentium 4, 3.0ghz, 512mb ram, 80gb hard drive.
The external drive is a WD Mybook 250ghz which I have partitioned to 180g and 70g
