backup and restore?

If I do a backup and restore with a external hard drive, and it comes with software,do I have to use that software? Or can I use the drive with the backup and restore that is in Windows 7?

  • Hi Vic,
    unfortunately we do not offer general tech support here at O'Reilly. If it was a question about a lesson or example in one of our books we'd be happy to help.

    If the external drive came with software, I would recommend referring to it's documentation or support site to get the definitive answer that would best suit your backup / restore needs.
    Also, you can find a lot of useful information about the backup / restore feature of Windows 7 on
    They have an extensive set of articles on the topic. Sorry we couldn't be of more help.
