Backup entire system

  tricia321 17:54 05 Nov 2005

when I want to doa back up using Xp pro it says I need nearly three days to do it and god knows how many floppys, I gave up after using 15 floppys and it still said that over two more days were neccessary to complete the task,surely there must be a quicker way to back up your system, I just tried to back up my excel and pictures and some letters on word but even that was going to take over 20 hours and god knows how many flopys for that too, how do other people back up their systems in case of complete system failure?

Write the back-up image to cd with acronis or cd/dvd with norton ghost.
