Re: How Can I Backup 30 GB of Data for my New OS?
do you have another hard drive laying around somewhere? you could put that in as a slave and put your data on that while you reformat. or if you have a dvd burner you can use a whole bunch of dvd's. I just backed up 27.5 gb of music on 7 dvd's and with a 16x dvd burner it only took me about 6-7 minutes a dvd to burn so it wasn't that bad. and if you do that, you'll have a permanent backup of all your stuff. you should be doing backups like that regularly anyway in case something happens to your computer.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
