I am a pharmacist; but, because of an unusual set of circumstances, I have morphed into a professional stock trader

I have to use an external hard drive to back up the data on a couple of my computers that are especially vulnerable; that need to be protected from crashes and data loss, because I trade stocks for a living. I have three computers in my house, two desktops and a laptop. Two of them run Windows Vista Home and the laptop runs Windows XP Professional.

Hard drives and mother boards have a way of going out on me at the worse possible time. Computer Renaissance and the Geek Squad at Best Buy have saved me several different times over the years. I have finally been able to replace my dependence on them by the use of a Western Digital external hard drive.

I bought a large enough external hard drive to back up all three computers on it and now I don’t have to worry about most computer-crashing problems.

There are many external hard drives out there. Many of them are inexpensive and easy to use. Keep your important data, photos, music, home videos and more safe and backed up on external drives.

The links below are to some web sites that might be helpful. Take a look. They might help you to decide about getting an external hard drive for yourself or your business.
