Synchronizing data on external hard drive

I was having windows7 operating system installed on my Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop. I was having updated antivirus software so that it can protect my system from adware, malware etc. while browsing the internet last night there was virus attack and due to the virus attack my operating system files got corrupted. So I have transferred all my data on an external hard drive. I wanted to know if I can synchronize data on my external hard drive. If yes then I need the steps to synchronize it.

Re: Synchronizing data on external hard drive

If you are having Mac OSx operating system installed on your system and if you want to synchronize external hard drive which is containing data then you can synchronize it very easily. The steps to synchronize the data on Mac OSx platform are very simple. You need to start the system and plug the hard disk into the USB port of the computer system. After connecting the hard disk, wait for some time till the machine prompts. After the machine prompts you need to click on the Use as Backup Disk from the time machine window. Now the data on the external hard disk will start synchronizing.
