Hi Rajan, That is a good suggestion. I recently got two 4.3 gig Western Digital HD's, that I can make into bootable primary HD's with core programs when I'm feeling ambitious. Then I don't have to delete anything on my two 20 gig WD's, but use them as archive secondary HD's. Two of each size, all same name brand, allows for one backup of each, with no HD incompatibility problems. It will be my pc's 'new me', when I get it all done someday. I also just got a Lite-On 52x32x52 cdrw unit, that sounds like rushing air when it's running, to make those backups you mention.
