I have a laptop that is mainly used for business and contains alot of my important files. I want to get an external harddrive for backup purposes. I only have a 60 gig hd, so Im not looking for anything with a huge drive. I also want something that will make a 1:1 of my current hard drive, I dont want to put only certain files in the backup, I want an exact copy of my hard drive.

Any suggestions, even on older models?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Marlon

Have you checked out Maxtor's OneTouch Backup drives?

Hi,
Thanks, I had already looked at those. My thing is, I dont need a drive that big, I only have a 60 gig on my laptop so I dont need the extra space, all I want to do is make a 1:1 backup of my exisitng drive in case my laptop goes down.

make your own, buy the external box in firewire or usb, and put any drive on sale in it, my suggestion would be, a special edition wd, 80gig+8, they are having some good sales, on these drives and ive found them for 30-40 dollars.
