Firstly I know nothing about computers so please bear with me. I have been searching Google but am now mega confused.
I have just bought a WD external harddrive 1TB to backup my Windows PC and store the drive off site incase of theft or fire.
This is what I think I want to achieve:
- Do a complete operating system backup, to be able to restore my PC if it fails. I will want to reback this up probably once a month and it can be written over or replaced.
- Store a load of old emails and photos that can then be deleted off my PC. They would be accessible on the external harddrive if needed, but never written over or deleted. New archived files could be added to this area when needed.
- Back up all existing data files (itunes/photos/documents/emails) on a monthly basis. This would be ideal if it just added anything new each time, ie, just syncronised the new data with the old and saved it.
