I'm after a networked external hard drive as a remote backup for my Vista laptop and my Win2K laptop. Can anyone recommend one. I've seen

Western Digital (pcworld)
Maxtor (Maplin)
Buffalo (Amazon)

I dont want anything complicated, 250GB £150.

FAT32 is fine. Easy setup and reliabilty of connection are important.

Buffalo NAS Drives are Formatted to XFS.

From the Manual,

Note that FAT32 has a 2 gigabyte fi lesize limit
for individual fi les. If you choose FAT32 for your
fi le system, you will not be able to store single
fi les larger than 2 gigabytes on the drive. Use of
the XFS or EXT3 fi le systems is recommended.
Press Select Target Disk when done.
