Default Backup files with exernal drive.

Hi, I know there are other methods to backup files, but if I backup files with my Maxtor external drive and later on my PC carks it, can I just hook up the Maxtor ext. drive to my new pc and retrieve my files? Or is it more involved?

If you are just backing up files like MP3's, movies and documents then yes, it is that easy.
