Re: Backing up your files and images

HI Andrew
	There is a program called Boot Magic right with Partition Magic that I
am sure can be set up with a partition. All of this didn't use to matter
but at least for myself the hard drive is 40 gigs now(and some are as
high as 80 gigs) and info could be added to that for years and have it
belly up wouldn't be very nice. Partitioning it so you only lose a
percentage of what was on it would help. All it does is make the one
drive act like two or more drives, that is what you would see in your
file system.
	As far as Andrew's question I am sure you could write the whole hard
drive to a second hard drive and have the program back it up
continually. Then all you would have to do is tell the computer to boot
from the second hard drive if the first one didn't work and you didn't
want it to boot from the a drive.
	As far as uploading files I don't do much of that with a 28.8
connection but I do store passwords and similar files at idrive.com.
