I have a 1tb wd elements external hard drive, which I want to back up my Windows 7 computer to. The back up in Windows 7 will only backup to a DVD. How do I get it to back up to the external hd?

There is an option to select location you want to place back up images.

Click Start. Control Panel. Under System and Security, click Back up your computer. Then on the left you should see Create a system image. There will be an option to select hard drive for the back up.

You can also use free third party backup software such as Macrium Reflect.
