External Hard Drive

By galehickey2 ·
Purchased an External Hard Drive for making backups. If I make a backup of my C: drive and then my system goes south and I use this backup I will still have to reinstall my programs-right? Thanks.

If you make an image of your drive and copy it to the external hard drive, nope, you will not have to reinstall your programs, only if they didn't get included in the'll need special drive imaging software, you can buy if fairly cheap or shareware. search for 'drive image' at or or such...why don't you keep a weekly drive image and daily backups of your data? let us know if you need help finding which files to backup...
