I am trying to backup everything on my computer. What would be a good program to compliment this? I have norton ghost, but all it seems to do is just take an image. I would prefer something where i can manually copy folders from the backed up folder (does norton have this feature, and I am just missing it?)

Ghost does have the ability to perform File and folder backups. Personally I don't really see the need, as you can mount the image backups you saved, which will then show up as drive letters, allowing you to restore individual files and folders.
