Which backup software to choose ???

  RKMonty 16:09 22 Oct 2007

Hi I have an enternal 120gb Hard Drive and I wish to backup all the programs and documents/photos/settings etc that I have on my pc at present. (Future documents and photos I can copy onto CD's ) So that if my hard drive on my pc fails/crashes I would be able to buy a new hard drive and run the data from my external hard drive so as to create a new/restored pc. Any ideas of which software would cover my requirements would be appreciated whether freeware or paid for are fine. Just trying to be sensible and create a copy before anything may happen. Many thanks.
I've had my pc a few years and thinking one day ............

If you are serious about back ups there are only two choices in my opinion - Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image.

Having tried ALL previous versions of both I would recommend Acronis True Image. It's a better product with a far better support service.

One more vote for Acronis!

If you want something really easy to use and which really works have a look at click here I set it to back up automatically daily. You can try it out as a trial.

Acronis 10, it backs up automatically or to your order.

tried a few like ghost. the most unreliable one was xxclone.

if you have a seagate or maxtor goto their website and download seatools a free acronis programme.

Acronis - live without it at your peril!

Acronis 7 let me down badly but XXclone has worked for me and is free.
