Without having to install any software, just buy an external hard drive, then drag and drop everything you care about to it.

You can also install some software and leave the hard drive plugged in, and it will do all the rest. But buy a BIG hard drive.

Yes I used the Beta.

This is my current "standard" start menu. I have not done any changes to get it that way. Most of my tweaks are performance tweaks (I.E. getting faster boot-time, faster loading etc.). If any of you need technical support with windows or basic linux, I'm glad to help! Smile

The macbook crashes I was having were caused by malware, which is not longer rare on macs.  I installed a remover and no more crashes. The need for security is a new experience for mac users.....

Um, those are too small to back up anything except your most precious files. You want to buy something that looks like a little box with a wire attached to it. It will have the words "storage" or "hard disk" on the packaging. Then drag your whole damn computer folder to it. Do it once a week, and accept that the copying will take a while.

If you buy one that has the words "backup software" on it, then have a friend come over and set it up for you to do it automatically.
