Hi there,

I was wondering if any of you have heard of a reliable place or places on the net where we can "store" or leave a backup copy of a hard drive?

Thanks much
Nikki

Isn't it easier to use a utility like Ghost and then burn it off to DVDs?
I don't know how big the harddrive is, but do you know how long it will take to upload the X amount of data and then later download it again? Wink

Hi Jord and thanks for taking the time.

My harddrive is old, it's a Samsung SV1022D.  My pc is an HP pavillion with 531 mhz and 320mb of ram.   I run with Windows XP Pro 2002 - no sp2 - yes it is slow and I wish to get a bigger harddrive 'cause mine started making a clicking sound about a month ago. 
Now I understand it my be easier to burn it all on cd but don't got one of those.  That was why I asked if it could be done by using a "briefcase" of some kind on the net.  I also heard that I could "clone" my HD but if it has problems on it, the cloned copy will bring the probs back where I don't wish to have them.  Any suggestions Jord on how to transfer or backup my HD without a cd burner?

If you can spare the expense, you can go for http://www.streamload.com
They do have a 10GB free account, but it can only download something like 100MB per month.

How reliable are these kinds of accounts in terms of security?  Have you heard of yahoo briefcase, any thoughts on it?   

Thx
