Hi all,

I am using Handy Backup to backup my data. It has been working fine up until today. It is a trial version, I have 18 days left, and everytime I start the program, it locks up.There is nothing else to do but Ctrl-Alt-Del. Does anyone have any suggestions for me to fix this problem?

Also, I have a DVD Writter and I need to backup work information off the Windows 2000 Server and 2 Windows XP machines, full backup. Can anyone recommend any software besides Handy Backup that will do a full backup AND an incremental backup?

Thanks for the help.

As professional software I recommend Power Quest Diskkeeper
but I also use handy backup sometimes and it works quite fine for me.
Did you try reinstalling it?

Are you wanting it to burn to the DvD writer while you back stuff up? Or are you making a backup file and burning it to DvD?

I am making a backup file and burning it to DVD. I have the drag-and-drop function on, so it burns right away.
