I wondered if someone could point me to tutorial or explain to me what I need to do to meet my objective.
In case my internal HD fails, what steps do I take to ensure that my OS and/or applications remain intact on the external drive? In other words, if the worst happens I want to be able to boot from the USB hard drive and somehow move all its contents back onto a new internal HD, including the OS. Is that even possible? My BIOS gives me ExtUSB drive as a choice in the boot order.
Or...is the OS (WinXP) a separate issue? Would I have to load XP on a new internal drive and then copy all apps and files back over from the USB drive?
Does anyone know if the "duplicate" function in Retrospect is creating a clone/ghost of my internal drive?
So many questions, so little knowledge!!!
