    I have been advised that it might be more advantageous for me to back up my
    files on an external hard drive instead of on 5 or 6 DVD's. How do I go
    about determining the capacity, quality and type of hardware needed? Can
    someone point me in the right direction/

    Many Thanks!

    Most systems have USB ports.......buy an External HD in a case with a USB
    connection.
    The amount of Data that you back up determines the size of the
    drive.......or just buy the
    largest you can afford.
