  1. Great idea and seagate has a external hard drive that is easy to use and small enough to take with you anywhere. Another tip for security is to use microsoft essentials from microsoft. Free, easy to use, safe, free upgrades and updates and works with any version of OS or Office. My hubs uses paid for security software and he gets issues all the time. Me NONE and we are on the same network. Thanks for the great site miss Cheryl.
