    Portable HDD + Windows Complete PC Backup

    Can anyone recommend a portable HDD i.e completely USB powered, that is compatible with Windows Complete PC Backup? I need a portable drive to carry around backup images, around the 250-320GB capacity, but it must be compatible with Complete PC Backup.
    Cheers!

    You can purchase your own hard drive enclosure :

    External drive bay (For SATA Drive) - Aria Technology

    Then get your own hard drive

    Products - Aria PC

    Just make sure you purchase the correct size ( physical dimensions ) for the enclosure you purchase

    Put the two together and jobs a good un

    You can get IDE hard drive enclosures but seeing as SATA is out the links above are for sata enclosures and hard drives so obviously thats another thing to take into consideration ( just to make sure you select the correct enclsosure for the correct drive ( sata or ide )

    The USB port died on my WD Passport Essential 250Gb drive as linked by CPLTD above . Would be good to get another enclosure as it's a pain carrying around a SATA to USB kit and separate power block everywhere I Go!
