oooo the best oooo well i have a CD Writer and Nero and a CD drive oh and not forgetting CD-R's.
Easiest backup solution.
But i also have Powerquests Drive Image, which can take an image of a drive, so any problems you restore the image. You do not have to reinstall windows. Anything actually, and all your docs are backed up.
I have an imaged XP of xxGB (The image file is 2.4GB) and it takes 7 minutes to restore the image.
2,3,4+ hours to reinstall an o/s software, personal settings all correct? Takes too long...
