    I just puchased this external storage unit for creating a backup of my laptop. I use W7 HP and a amd 64X system. I use about 200GB so my brain tells me this device will be adequate for my needs. Am I on the proper sheet of music here. Thanks

    i hope you didn't get the one with their crappy Smartware backup software. The size of the backup will depend on what software you use. Some use some compression. Or are you backing up manually?
