So I borrowed my freind's usb hard drive to backup all of my music, word documents, and pictures. But I still have a few questions:
What else do I need to backup that I might want to transfer to the new hard drive after I buy it?
Also, what kind of hard drive should I get, ATA, SATA, RAID?
Can I just use the Windows XP disc that came with my computer when I bought it brand new (July of 2003) and just redownload all the updates for windows etc?
Anything else that I should specifically know?
Thanks for all the help!
