Hello folks,
I have a vintage MacBook early 2008 running stock OS viz leopard. I am in a process to upgrade it to snow leopard in order to run a Windows based software. For this i need to back up my files in an external drive.

I need to know possible options to buy a suitable external drive or alike for my purpose. Any inputs will be appreciated. Thanks for reading and your time.
QUOTE Thanks

There are probably 100's of options. The most important one being the size of the external drive you want. Almost any external drive will doas long as it's the size you need for your purposes.
