Yes, I do...
I always like to hear about other ways of doing thinghs & about
what other people expect & what they find out...

*Some* (though obviously not all) External, USB Hard disk Drives
do now come with Software Supplied (& Installed) on them, which
does all that sort of Backing Up (& yes, it is done pretty much
Automatically, at "the Press of a Button"!
But Note: It *is* actually Backing Up - It *doesn't* Install the
Operating System (or Programs) onto the External USB Hard Disk Drive.
But then, for many people, what they want (& what they buy something
like an External USB Hard Disk Drive for!) *is* for Backing stuff Up,
What Hawkeye is doing (which is *Installing* (additional) Operating
System(s) on an additional Hard Disk Drive), is not the same thing at
all - though yes, obviously he can *also* use it for Backing Up stuff
