Hello-
Can someone please suggest the best way to back up a home computer system.
Compaq Presario 160GB HD
I would like to store an image of the entire system in case it crashes. I was looking at tape systems but they cost more than my PC!

I was hoping to find a solution under $200.

Are those web backup sites a good bargian?
Thanks
Ken

Acronis True Image can do this and costs $50.

I have never used it myself but have heard good things about it.
