Hello, everyone.

This is probably and hopefully very fundamental to many of you.

I'm looking for a a backup method for my little, Dell netbook which has the following features:

What is the BEST software any of you know of, that I can purchase, that can capture EVERYTHING on my pc exactly, precisely, as it is at any given moment and back it up EVERY FEW SECONDS ALL THE TIME always discarding all but the most recent backup - to an external hard drive in case my computer ever takes a dump on me.

Is there such software??

Please advise and mental hugs for any replies.

Acronis True Image is the best disk imaging software and you can schedule incremental backups, but every few seconds? Not sure I'd do that with Acronis.

Here is something that seems to do what you want, but I've never used it:

I believe Oops!Backup will do what you are looking for.
It's a continuous backup program.
As you make changes to any of your files, it automatically backs up.
