    I want to backup my files to a portable hard drive. My frirst attempt created all zip files. Can I just copy the files and how do I do it?

    When I reinstalled vista, I just Copy an pasted the whole My documents. Simple, just make sure it fits the medium your using.

    Just right click and it will bring up a drop down menu, with file options, to copy or cut. There are program's out there that will back up for you to.

    Use the backup utility that comes with Vista. When you get to the drop down menu click it, select the removable drive and hit the go button.
