recommend a backup program

Please could you recommend a free backup program for me.
I have tried the windows one which i did not like, and i have tried back2zip which was good but kept missing things.

I just want my document and settings etc, nothing as powerful as copying the system.
Something basic easy to use and I can see easy if the backup has been made properly and changes have been saved.

if you are using or know of such a program I would be glad to know.

Thanks a lot.

There`s a very good backup program for free on this months (August) PC Advisor cover disk by Genie-Soft.
It`s very reliable too especially for what you need it for.

Backup is extremely important and it is worth while considering Acronis True Image 10 if you can stretch to it.

I know its not free, but I would strongly recommend Acronis True Image

I was sceptical at first but it has saved my bacon so many times I would not consider running a system without Acronis TI 10.
It is the most useful prog I have ever laid out cash for and do not grudge a penny of it.

You can get a time limited trial of the full version here :

Amazon are still offering it for £21.97 instead of £39.99

Yes i have seen that program recommended here a lot, and i will consider it in the near future.
But i have been out of work with Ill heath for a while , so i have to watch every penny.

For now i was just looking at the best of the free bunch, but all advise is most welcome.

This is easy to use as a backup, but to restore you have to open Windows Explorer and drag and drop the files back in there places.
