"Upgrading" Media Center
I currently have a Sony Vaio runnign at 3.2 Ghz i think about 512 mb ram and a 140 gig hardrive. It currently has XP Home and I think i am gonna get Media Center. I know i have to back-up and pretty much delete the hard drive for this to work. I have a couple questions:
1. What should I use to back-up? (I have an external HDD just need to know what program is the best, i need one that will allow me to move the files back individually without using the program so i can move some documents back but not all.)
2. I have alot of programs and saved things liek saved games that i want. I alos have some spyware and stuff that i od not want. Will i be able to decide what i want re-installed or will i have to keep everything on the hard-drive. Re-install the programs i want, and move all the saved files individually?
*EDIT*: My computer also came with some pre-installed soft ware and an internal video capture card. Will I be able to keep all of that, will i need to get the drivers for the card, and will it be possible for media center to work with the card? (Right now only Giga-Pocket will access it and i need to stream TV to my 360.)
Ouch, no sig pics allowed.
