Backup System onto a CDR

  [DELETED] 14:22 09 Nov 2003

New to XP and want some help in finding a good backup program which allows me to backup onto a CD.
Would like to be able to backup and boot from the CD if my system does down!!!
Any ideas???

The best backup for me is Drive Image, As it puts everything back just as when you create the backup. All in about 5 to 10 Minutes. You need to check the Version will work with XP as there are still older versions out there

I use Acronis which was given away on PC Answers magazine for March 2003 Issue 117. You might be able to buy a backdate copy from the PC Answers website at click here

Check your XP, there is a back-up there.

spuds, don't have XP but previous MS backups have not been very good. Always had to use a Third Party backup system. Is the XP one any different?

I use Acronis True Image 6,0 the paid for version, costs about £30, cheaper if you shop around. Only used it once, restored everything up to just after a re-format, worked excellently. Tried to restore another image using about 3 discs,wasn't successful, probably something I'd done. On the one occasion I had to contact their tech support they where prompt and knowledgeable which is a big plus in my book. HTH TR

click here They have a basic backup software for beginners which only backs up to CDs and DVDs and a more advanced one for people with loads to back up.

I use the basic one and it seems ok.
