External drives are perfect for upgrading or migrating to Window 7

Back up first
For safety … because stuff happens … use an external drive to back up your data before starting the upgrade or migration.

Plenty of room for a smooth transfer
Although Windows Easy Transfer works with thumb drives and CD’s, an external drive gives you plenty of space to assure a smooth transfer to your new Windows 7 system.

Back up always!
When you’re done with the upgrade, make the external drive your back up drive and always keep your data backed up.
