I want to back up my hard drive to an external hard drive(Western my book 320G)I do not wish to purchase their auto back-up program.Can this be accomplished?


Yes it can,. Your external HDD will show up in "my Computer" as another drive. You can transfer files simply using copy and paste. (or edit -> copy files to folder) which I advise. Bear in mind that hidden, and read only files will not be copied. These files include the mailboxes in Outlook Express. So be careful. I advise making copies of all files of this kind, first.

Can not copy outlook messages


It looks like your external hard disk in FAT32 system and outlook messages file .PST is more then 4GB.

To know the file system of the Hard Disk right click on the drive select properties.

Check your file system first. FAT32 will not support more than file size of 4GB.

There are 2 options to copy.

1. Split the .PST in to 2 or more outlook data file

or

2. Convert the FAT32 System to NTFS.

To convert from FAT32 to NTFS. go to following link

I just bought my first Cruzer 4gb. Flash drive. I'd like to put mail from Outlook Express from two different computers on this drive. Then, I'd like to be able to carry the drive back and forth between...


It is possible but your choice of drive would not be mine as they are prone to failure.

It is pretty simple to create a folder on a flash drive, lets say called "mail"

Then you could tell outlook express to change the "STORE FOLDER"

this is done by going to the tools, options menu and selecting maintenance then the store folder button This will tell you where your mail is currently stored.

At this point I would exit outlook express and go to the stroe location and copy (NOT CUT & PASTE) the contents to the folder you created on your flash drive.

I would then open outlook express and go back to the store folder button and this time click "change"

Now you can point it to the flash drive and folder you created.

It will ask if you are sure and if you click yes it will then tell you to restart outlook express or that the changes will not take effect until you restart.

I would do a full system shut down restart to be sure but it is not always needed.

You can then check that is is indeed using the new folder by opening up outlook express and checking your mail if you get mail then double check it is still set to the flash drive.

You can then repeat the process on the other computer and check again.

As a final check take it home and try again and if all is good you have done what you want.

It may also be prudent to export your address book and email accounts to the flash drive too.

Please do make a backup of the flash drive.

I use a similar method to keep all my email in case of a computer crash that besides a proper backup system to my server so that my *** is fully covered.

Does it make any clicking/clunking sounds like any of these?
If yes - it's really bad. If it sounds normal then try to remove it from enclosure and connect directly to a PC.
