Hello all. HAPPY NEW YEAR !! :)

Question. My father asked me the other day if he was able to boot of an external drive. He has a P4, gig of ram with a 60 gig internal drive too but I really wasn't sure. So why not ask you all. :p

Anyone ?

If you want to do this to backup your computers – There’s another way, besides being able to boot from an external HD.

Using Acronis True Image …. http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/
You can make a backup Image of your computer and store it in the external HD.

Then, if needed – you can recover your computer (or a new HD) from the External HD –
back to exactly the way it was when you made the backup recovery image.
