Looking for Better Backup Capability:
I have a Dell Vostro 420 Desktop -- WIN Vista Business SP2 -- as my everyday, home computer. I also have a Dell Latitude D820 laptop -- WIN XP Pro -- that I use is an emergency stand-in or when for mobile purposes.
Iíve been backing up my desktop on a weekly basis for some time now. Over the years Iíve tried various backup programs but have never been satisfied with their ease of use, longevity, keep-up with advancing technology and my own changing needs.
Iíve been doing simple weekly copy Ďn paste backups from desktop to external HD. This arrangement is far from perfect but Iíve found it easier to retrieve individual files in a hurry and without a hassle.
Still, Iím looking for a better way of backing up. One particular need is to get back to daily backups of files created/updated in the last 24 hours. This used to be called a differential or incremental backup Ė I forgot which. Itís been that long.
SO Ė Iím open to suggestions that are not too technical or esoteric for this semi-literate computer user.
