I have an older Dell desktop, with Windows XP (home), running a Firefox browser. It has a 40 gig capacity of which I've used about 30. I'm an older, non-techie, retired guy looking for a simple back up device that can be programed to TOTALLY back up everything (programs, files, photos, etc. - the entire hard drive) and update the modified files on a daily basis. What could be my reasonable options?
Thanks for any help.
With my (limited) understanding of the back up software description, I would select 'Paragon System Backup 2010' - which 'sounds' good to me. With that software program, could just about any good external hard drive be 'programmed' to back up the entire existing hard drive or would I need a more specific brand/model? I so appreciate your help.
Some external USB drives come with software, although retail software will be superior. Paragon software will work with any USB external hard drive. Make sure you format the drive NTFS. Paragon System Backup 2010 should work fine.
