No one I know will use Microsoft's own backup software. I use a few titles such as Acronis, Apricom and Clonezilla.
The Toshiba Canvio Basic 2GB USB 3.0 model works great. Hey, I bought 2.
Before I take the leap of faith of upgrading from 8.1 to 10, I would like to totally back up everything on my laptop and store it all (I have had the experience of losing everything in the past with previous desktops). I would like to purchase something (preferably 2TB or more) that can handle 8.1 and 10. Any suggestions or recommendations? Thanks.
