Need help with computer recovery
Ok guys, just over the past few days I've been having more and more problems with my computer, I've had a few that were bearable for a while, but now it's getting bad. I'm thinking about doing the computer recovery program on my computer and reset everything, but I have a lot of information I have to transfer. I was wondering what the best way of doing this?
I was thinking about an external hard drive, but those are a little out of my price range. I need something that can hold over 20 gigabytes at once. Would it work if I went and bought a new internal hard drive, loaded that on my computer, transferred the wanted files over to it, unplug it, do product recovery and then reinstall the new hard drive? I wouldn't have to reformat the new hard drive again after I do the recovery would I?
