Hitachi XL 1000 hard drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just bought a Hitachi XL1000 external hard drive. I want to know how to backup two different PC (one is window xp and the other is window 7) to it. I want to make sure it won't overwrite each other when I do the backup. Please advise.

  • Hi,

     

    As I know, if you perform a Complete PC backup, both Windows XP and Windows 7 will be backed up because they share the system reserved partition, they store boot entries on this partition.

     

    Best Regards
