Hi, #1 I've recently been making backups using DVD Copy Xpress on my Dell P4 2300s with 512 MB of RAM with a 20GB hard drive. I also have a 250GB external hard drive connected via USB. When I attempted to change the default path from C to E (external drive) during the copy phase, the software estimated it would take over an hour. I cancelled out. #2 After I make a successful copy keeping the default C path my PC frezzes for about 2 minutes or so. Questions: 1. Does it make sense to change the default C path to E if I connect via external Firewire and not USB? I believe that my PC may be USB 1.0. Will that decrease the time? I'd like to get good use from the 250GB drive. 2. If I keep the current path to C, will I not get froze up if I put in a 160GB internal drive and remove the 20GB. I only can fit one in. I believe I have approx. 11 or so GB out of the 20 left. Thanks.
