    Hello Friends!

    I have a Dell Laptop LATITUDE | E6400. And it came with a Reinstallation DVD Windows Vista Business Disc (see attachment)

    Also, i went to the Backup Status and Configuration window and also the Backup and Restore Center (see attachments)

    I'm not quite sure what to do with the various Options offered there?

    I assume I need to do a Complete Backup of the system?!? Windows tells me it would take 8 to 14 DVD's to do a complete backup. That' seems ridiculous to me.

    The Hard disk is of coarse another Option and I assume this is an external Hard drive they are talking about?!? Which I have that I've used for my PC.
    *Can I use that same external Hard drive to do this "Complete Backup?" Or do I need another external hard drive? (see attachment) it has 220GB of 298GB free.

    Let me know as best your able how you might go about doing these steps "safely?"

    Thank You!

    Sincerely, Ralph

    it's all in your head we just don't know it...I know you think you understand what you thought I said,but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant. `~Unknown
