I bought a 160G external drive and did a full backup to it. I scheduled incrementals every 7 days with the software that came with the drive. It's hooked up through the USB port. How do I get back online if I have a HD failure? I'm guessing my computer won't boot from the external HD? My new PC didn't come with any type of recovery CD. I'd really like to be able to boot up and run until I purchase the new HD and install it. Then I would just do a restore from the external HD. Anybody know? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
