    Backup Hard Drive

    I have a DELL 4600 running Windows XP. Can I copy the entire hard drive to an external hard drive and use that as a "backup" in case the current hard drive crashes? Would I be able to install the "backup" hard drive into the Dell 4600 and have it run properly?

    Just a copy won't work. You need imaging software. Search the lounge for various threads about imaging software.
