  • You can disable OneCare backup, you can purchase an inexpensive (relatively so) external hard disk or you can get a replacement CD/DVD burner. If you have another networked PC, you can make a folder on the other PC be the location for your backup from this PC.
    Finally, you can use the instructions Jim has pointed you to if you have a second internal hard drive available.
