I regularly reinstall windows XP,VISTA,7 for clients. I backup their files to my external usb hard drive and then put the files back on the newly reinstalled system.
I am concerened about the following. What if one day the drive goes bad on me before I have the chance to put client's files back on their fixed PC.
Want to know what you guys do to avoid something like this happening as I try to make the process of backing up as short as possible, so client doesn't get irritated?
