External USB 120gb hdd for T-20

    I am considering buying one of these on ebay. I bought my T-20 used
    with windows2000 installed. Would I be able to backup all of windows
    to the external drive incase my regular harddrive fails? Would I then
    be able to boot from it?
    The internal drive is an 11gb which is about 3/4 full now. It is quite
    noisey but tests out ok. I will be using a usb 2.0 cardbus for
    transfer.

    Thanks for any info.

    Yes. I bought one of the Maxtor 250GB external hard drives for the same
    reason for my T-20. It works perfectly.
