I would like to know how to backup my files in my Compaq PC which uses Windows XP.
I'd like to backup my pictures, etc, on my computer. I think I have around 100 gb of pictures and stuff currently, and I'd like to be able to back up ~350. I'm running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600).
Here is some info that Belarc Advisor gathered for me:
1.80 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
512 kilobyte secondary memory cache
Board: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. A8V Rev 1.xx
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 0107 03/09/2005
-Device Manager has a raid controller listed in "other devices," although there is a yellow question mark next to it, and it is not functioning, and doesn't have a driver installed. I don't know whether I actually have a raid controller.
I wouldn't know where to look inside my computer case for a connection for raid, or where on the motherboard...idk what I'm talking about
-The computer has a cd burner.
-I've read about external harddrives, and they seem to fail easily regardless of brand. Nevertheless, I do have 2 free usb ports side by side.
