I did use the forum search form for "back up", "backing" and "backup" but it seems there's not a tutorial for the best way(s) to do a backup. I attempted using the backup tool on my XP Pro computer, the estimated size was almost 20 gigs, and the thing crashed halfway through. Maybe it's better to copy paste, or there are better utilities out there. Anyway, this would be useful to me.
