any recommendations for an external hard drive to back up my data (having lost two, non-backed up hard drives in as many years I've finally learned my lesson). Not a lot of data, mostly photos. I've got a 250MB hard drive in a Dell laptop, if that makes any difference.
Is external storage better/safer/easier to recover than say Windows 7 back up facility?

Shop around for 500GB or 1TB drives. The prices since Thailand floods have gone silly.
Standard 1TB ext USB 2.0 a few weeks ago was £40.
External drives are the preferred means of backing up and Imaging main computer drives.
This is the sort of thing that would be suitable (£60 ain't bad at this time?)
