Anyway. I work in a relatively small environment. And, over the last year, have been updating all the PCs there. I am actually the graphic designer at my company. But, about 30% of the time, I install software and troubleshoot LED signs that our company installs and sells. ( we are a sign company ).
Anyway, I am looking into a new external hard drive for backup and mirroring purposes for our Network. Our system only consists of five computers plus the 'server' on a workgroup configuration. The 'server' isn't a server really. It's XP.
As are all the computers except one. Which is a brand new laptop, which is Vista ( which I will be upgrading to Windows 7 shortly)
The only thing that I see as an issue is that the 'server' is a 32bit system and the rest of the PCs are 64bit.
And was wondering if there were hardware constraints as far as this goes.
The PCs are HPs
All OSs are XP Pro except the laptop which for now is Vista
There was also one other question which I had which has to do with the Vista Laptop. I have an 3500 HP Color Laserjet Printer at the office. And the Vista laptop does not want to connect to it. Even with the newest updated drivers.
The printer does not have a Ethernet connection, so it runs through the PC.
As I said earlier the system is 32 bit, which is what I think is what is causing the issue. BUT..the hard drive is plenty big. There is plenty or RAM. And There have been no issues other than that.
