I'm thinking about getting a laptop to replace my desktop except for gaming (rare these days).
However I'd like to know all my data on the laptop is backed up on another hard drive; especially when I go out of the house with the laptop.
What solutions are there?
Could I use a external hard drive of the same capacity (or greater) and when I plug it into the laptop I could run a app to update any necessary files.
The alternative would be to manually keep my important files on other drives.
The laptop would be dual boot Ubuntu/Windows7
