Chas: Thank you for taking soooo much time to ans. some of my questions! I WILL try the Mail pgrm. first bef. assuming that I won't like it; I promise.

How do I KNOW if the WD HD is already formatted with Fat32 or NTFS?

"You should copy the My Pictures, My Music, My Movies etc folders to the external, backup your email file and bookmarks and other documents. That's about it."
Since you say to backup my email - wouldn't I do that by transf. all that to the new ext. HD, by copying it over to it, just the same as you said to copy over those pic folders, etc. onto the ext? I.E., what's the diff., if any, bet. backing up the email, bookmarks, etc. or copying it to the ext.? Just asking ...
QUOTE Thanks
