    Thanks Mike First link didn't work but it does now...

    Very useful and something I keep meaning to do but never get round to it.

    Yeah, try to back up as much as possible:


    You can save emails from AOL too!! If you want a link on that I can find you one. To backup bookmarks from IE I think you go to the file menu and click on "export".

    I recently lost a hard drive full of 6 months-worth of un-backed-up stuff!! I should have learnt my lesson by now. It seems to happen to so many people!!

    I dont have AOL Ducky so go ahead and post it

    I have one of those 250gig Buffalo drive stations that were going for £80 something recently. I use that with Norton Ghost as a dedicated backup drive for the whole of my raid array.
