What gets me is that this is from last year. But I haven't really needed it till this week.

Just now trying this. Working like a charm.

Yup, works great...but it can take FOREVER if your backing up an entire catalog, just FYI. I took almost 2 days to transfer about 10K pictures to my new laptop... :eek:

I currently have my catalog on a removeable drive. The desktop is starting to get flaky, so I am glad with that choice so far.

X2. I have mine on a portable that I keep with me and also backed up to the desktop and my other external.

And like you Chester, my desktop is getting really flaky :(

My desktop is about 5 years old, I guess it's time. Wondering if I should hold out for Windows 7 though, or even longer and just use the work lappy.

Mine is hitting the 5 year mark as well...I was going try to upgrade it a bit, but RAM is maxed, new video card a few months ago...only thing I can do is bigger HD and that still won't really address the issues.
