Okay. So I’m mostly interested in backing up my photos and documents and such, which I’ve already done. I do have two questions though.
I’m running Windows Vista on a 6 year old laptop. I bought the protable drive for when the inevitable happens. I’m at 90% capacity on my comptuer hard drive. I’d like to delete some old files, and was wondering if I’d still have access to them when my porable drive does it’s auto back up? If I purposely delete a file and empty it from the trash can, does it still keep a copy on my portable drive, or does it delete that file, as it does its auto backup?
Also, what about system files? I realize I’ll probably have to get a new laptop when this one finally goes out on me, and I know I’ll have to get the new verion of Microsoft Office (Yes, I know about Open Office), but are there other programs/files that would be good to back up? How do I know? Or should I just start from scratch when I get a new system? How do I back up system files, and how do I knew which ones I might want/need? Am I even making any sense??
