  1. Back Up Sets from old windows OS versions Vista, XP and Windows 7


    Hi - wondering if anyone can advise. I have an external hard drive which i've had for years and have in the past backed up various computers using back up and restore. I find that these Back Up Sets are taking a huge amount of space up on the external hard drive and as a result am I right in thinking I might as well delete these various huge files as they are now of no use?

    Thanks in advance

    PS Moving forward, I've got the gist of the Windows 10 method of File History.

    :)

    I think windows 7 is what vista SHOULD have been, still waiting for windows 7

    it seems that alot of the suggestions people gave in longhorn were implemented in windows 7 instead of vista, wth

  3. Microsoft Windows XP Downgrade Program Extended by Another Six Months

    Alot of company still happy with their old computers with XP on it. They saw no reasons to upgrade to Vista. Upgrading their system to Vista mean new hardwares or even branch new computers for a whole company, but what will Vista gives them? XP already have everything they need.

    Vista is just a stepping stone for Windows 7, just like Windows Me was a stepping stone for Windows XP.

    I'm not dislike Vista, I would stick with XP, but I want to learn new things about new OS. It's time to move on, and adopt new things.
