I was just checking what BC suggests for good backuphttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...ve+image+backup
It's a good link, very good, except that the websites didn't give me sufficient info to base the decision on.
Computer is WindowsXP home. I've been using NT backup, system and all, but I hear that it's not an image backup, which would be good to make every once in a while.
I have 80gig USB harddrive, Western Digital or somthing similar. I think it's NTFS, but might be FAT.
The universal standard for imaga backup seems to be norton's ghost, I've seen it used at work, but I don't want it.
What I'm looking for is a solid performer, i.e. tested under disaster recovery procedures. It gotta be easy to use, but the key thing is what it takes to recover in the event of trashing the computer hard drive. Did it boot, dit it lose files, did the computer worked afterwards - that sort of thing. I'm not looking for ads or magazine review type text, where I know they don't really test under circumstances where backup is so vital. Just real experience please.
Free would be best. Reasonably priced - acceptable.
