External drive that works with Vista Home?
I am trying to help out a friend who wants to buy an external hard drive. She said that everything she has read tells her that they are not compatiable with her laptop running Vista Home. Is this true? If not, can someone please recommend an external drive she can purchase? Right now she has her laptop just filled with pictures and videos she took. I advised her to get them off the laptop if they are important to her (which they are) since that is the ONLY place she has them stored. For some reason, she doesn't want to move them to CD/DVD.
If you have any other suggestions as well, please do include them.
Question #2: Could she possibly use True Image? I don't know how True Image (Acronis) works.. or how to use it... She just asked that too.
Thank you for any help or suggestions you may have. i appreciate it, and know she definitely will as well.
