I have bought an external hard drive box for the hdd out of my old dead pc and have connected it ok to this one running XP. I no longer need anything on the old drive, and want to keep it for back ups.

1. How do I go about reformatting it to get rid of all old files, windows 98se, etc and should it be formatted with FAT32 or the other thing?
2. Will it be possible using Drive Image 7 to back up Windows XP and all my files to the external drive? and if so, how?
