Backing up laptop drive

  thewasp 17:16 30 Aug 07

My laptop recently had a sudden hd failure, which was replaced under warranty. Now the warranty is coming to an end, I want to back up the operating system in case it happens again. Acronis 10 would appear to be ideal but the laptop only has a cd burner. Would this work or would I need to connect an external hd?

The preference would be external hard drive.

I have a spare hd in my desktop pc which is on a wireless network with the laptop, would that work?

Give it a go! If not buy an external drive, as big as you can afford.
