I'm trying to find out the "easy" way to back up an ext HD. I keep seeing "just search DishArc here and it will tell you", but I really don't find any threads explaining the process in full. 1. What Linux software do you need to run on Windows 7? Do you need to boot to Linux, or is there software that runs within Windows? I see UFS Explorer, Explore2fs, DiskInternals Linux Reader, and the Ext2 Installable File System for Windows mentioned.... which is best for a novice? 2. I see Acronis mentioned a lot, can Macrium be used, or do you need either if you can drag and drop with the above in #1? 3. Can you archive to a Windows PC HD folder, or does it need to be to another ext HD? 4. Can the subfolders (each recording) from an ext HD on a 211 be added to the DishArc folder of a 722? Just trying to start a thread here with all the answers.
