Basic Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Dell Dimension 5110 desktop I need to do a factory restore on. XP OS. I want to do a basic backup...nothing fancy or encrypted. I tried this with Synctoy before but made a mess of it because I didn't do the folders right. I have an external drive I put things on. I just want to backup My documents from this PC to the external HDD. How do I do it? When I tried before I tried My Documents folder on the left and My Documents HDD folder on the right thinking the right folder would be the external HDD but it did not come out that way. I made a mess of it. Any Help appreciated. Thanks,
