Help with BUSlink external hard drive



I just bought a 250 GB BUSlink USB 2.0 Hard Drive and am trying to back-up my notebook computer. The instruction manual does not include directions on how to perform a complete backup(!). I am puzzled by this, to say the least. I think I managed to back everything up by going to All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Files and Settings Transfer Wizard and then following instructions on how to transfer files from an old computer to a new (my external hard drive) computer. But I’m not sure.

Is there a simpler way to do this? I met someone at a party the other night who told me there was a way to synch the external hard drive, and so future backups would update only new files. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help,



try Norton Ghost

Also try Acronis True Image. Does a great job of full backup to an external disk first and then you can schedule it to do incremental backups.

Also cheaper than Norton Ghost :wink:

Here’s a nice article on how to do it …
