I have tried searching the forums, but the only posts I could find were locked ones from 2003!

I am thinking of moving away from combined Norton Security with Backup. What do folk suggest I go to to do my backups - either free software or pay for software?

If there are few recent posts on this topic then please can I have the URL's - thank you.

make a system image make an image of you data drive if seperate store on an external drive make the rescue disk

Image as often as you like and delete older images to save space find this method works better for me than differential backups. but the choice is yours.

If you have a Western digital drive either attached or in you computer they do a lovely cut down version of Acronis easy to use and works a treat for doing a drive clone.

OK - Thank you all for responding.

I shall have a look at the two ideas put forwards and thanks for advising why posts get closed after 3 months.
