I have Windows Vista Ultimate that as most know comes with the Complete PC backup & Restore Utility. I have a 500GB My Book Essential USB External HDD that is currenlty formatted in FAT32. I would like to reformat to NTFS and use this as my back up source.
My question is, If I reformat my external HDD and then use it to do a complete pc backup will I be able to use it do a functional restore of my internal HDD?
If my current HDD fails and needs to be replaced will I be able to use the complete pc restore backup on my external HDD to install the OS onto the new internal HDD?
Ihave had an internal HDD fail before and I do not want to have to go through all of that drama again!!
