As I mentioned in another post my laptop that had FreeBSD crashed and I wanted to dual boot with Linux. The problem was my hardware was too new. Not wanting to give up on FreeBSD I purchased a used laptop that was on the approved list for compatible computers. This laptop has a docking station with a 320 gb hd. The internal hd has windows 10 on it which I have no use for. I was thinking of using the external drive for a backup but I have a few questions. What file system would I need and how would I format it? I've found some scripts for backup that should work but does anyone has something they can recommend? Thanks for all the help you've given me.
