Why I ask, is that I have a USB2.0 external hard drive - 160gb - and that
works fine as a backup. But that one is format with NTFS, and of course a
3.5" disk (don't know much about this).

Another suggestion which has already been given, is to have two partitions.
I just wondered: If you, say, put all your music on partition 1, and all
your audiobooks on partition 2: Would it be possibel to - at the end of
partition 1 - to have a shortcut (or 'a road'), similar to the one you can
make under the Windows Explorer File menu, that points to the root of
partition 2?
