I intend to use a WD "My Passport Essential SE". Will I have problems with a bigger backup than my internal HD? What added software do I need?

Windows 7 has built in utilities for scheduling backups which most likely would do everything you need. m 0 l Ubrales a c 119 G Storage October 20, 2011 2:17:40 AM It is desirable to have the backup drive larger than the drive you are backing up. Don't select "Sector by sector" backup, and don't use compression. I backup a 1 TB drive on to a 1.5 TB external drive using Win 7 Backup or the free EASEUS TODO BACKUP alternately. I store two of the most recent backups just in case. Also create a "System Repair Disk" or Rescue Disk. The option is available both in Win 7 as well as Easeus. Easeus will also do incremental backups if you so desire. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
