What is the best way to back up computer files? On dvd?, Online? Also, other than media and such what other files should be backed up. Not a complete noob but I've just never bothered to backup before. If your HDD crashes I'm not sure what the point of online or local backup is. My Security suite is offering me this constantly and offers 2G's. Also offers compression. Is a backup going to restore your OS? If you have your OS disk will you be able to use the same key or will you have to beg for a new one? I don't worry about that on my Linux machines, but on Windows...they probably want your first born in return for a question. I can only imagine what getting a new key will entail. I know this sounds stupid but a simple explanation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
