copying / backing up computer disks

  markdavid 13:48 06 Oct 2006

I would like to make copies of my entire Word Documents / E-mails & Address book in Outlook Express / Firefox Bookmarks. For your information, I have Windows XP and use Firefox as my default Browser. I have CD ROM / DVD / diskette drives. I also have Nero Firewall installed and Panda Platinum Antivirus.
The copies would be only as an emergency in case of breakdown or if I sell this pc without transfering data direct from it to a new one.
What is the easiest / best way of making copies, and also adding to them to keep them up-to-date?
By the way, is this called making copies or back-up?

For me the best way is through Acronis True Image. It does everything includung your OS.

I would strongly recommend a USB external hard drive, and a program called Acronis true image. The external hard drive could be obtained from a firm such as Novatech, whilst the software program can be downloaded from the Acronis site.
