Backing up my computer...

..in case of crash, I would like to backup my programs to rw disk. Is it just a case of backing up 'program files' in explorer or is there more to it?

Also, how would I get the programs to work when restoring? Is there a simple solution?

Thanks

There is more to it.

You should be looking at backing up everything on your computer - OS / Programs / Data / Settings / Address Books / etc.

One of the easiest ways to do this is with Acronis True Image. This will make a compressed backup of your whole computer onto whatever media you wish. And it will also make updates to the backup whenever you wish.
