I have never had a failed HD but I did get a stolen computer. I have been reading up on different back up software. I want to back up my entire HD. I have an external drive already set up. I am wondering what is te best way to go about this. Do I just have a folder on my external that has a folder of my entire current HD? If I do have a crash of some kind how would I go about getting the info off my external drive to my new HD?
