Harddrive back up

#1

I know its time to reformat …i just wonder what you use to back up your programs …??? i’ve got so much crap on my computer i need to clean it out…and i don’t want to lose all those downloads…even though they were free…i dont’ want to take the time to download them a second time…sooo

tell me…what do you use?


#2

when I reformat I burn all my downloaded stuff to a CD/DVD or just move them to another partition, I found it to be the quickest and easiest way. :slight_smile:


#3

Good old Nero does the trick. Just make a standard Data CD/DVD!


#4

Same here or move some to a second hdd if you have one installed…


#5

I agree, moving files to a second hdd is my method of choice! :iagree:

Good Luck Sexy! :iagree:


#6

DVD’s (up to 4.5GB of data) are cheap … better to burn =] 10x 4,5GB = 45GB :smiley:


#7

It is much faster and easier to copy files to another HDD. :iagree:


#8

For me I just create a folder and throw all the programs I need or want and burn them to a cd.

I don’t trust a HD to store info or data for the simple fact (which isn’t likely) that the HD may give out…but that’s just me.

Very large external HD works for me SS. Actually I have all my stuff backed up to a external drive just in case something happens to my drives or system.
I also have everything backed up on cd and dvd. A very large box of backups! :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:


#10

All my “stuff” backed up on CDs.


#11

I move all movies close to 700mb to cd and all other stuff to a second hdd

don’t forget to backup all that great Pron

Good Luck!!!

@besmirch - When you have 150gb+ of data to back up like I do, it takes too long to burn it all to dvd.
