I see 2 machines, an external drive but where is the backup?
Let's say a pest gets on a machine and when we connect that USB drive it deletes or corrupts files. Since today's USB drives have no write protection you can't recover your files.
Is that ok?
I have two computers - a laptop running windows xp with a 60G hard drive and a desktop running vista home premium with a 500G hard drive. I would like to get an external hard drive to back up the entire desktop inluding the operating system but only the music files on the laptop. Is there a hard drive which can hold both or will I have to buy two drives?
Also which drives are the least troublesome?
