Hi Euan

I use a Western Digital Desktop ExHDD 1TB Essential Edition - Easy to use, one end into the mains and the other into a spare USB. Plug and play - then its simply a case of using the external drive in just the same way as you would your internal drive.

PC World have these drive for 79.59@

You might get one cheaper if you hunt around.

Have a gander on E bay Euan, try and get one which is USB powered, you don't have to bother with a power lead with them, you can get a 160 GB quite cheap too O0
