- Windows XP SP2
- EHDD: 40GB USB 2.0

I want to back everything up to my EHDD, and need some guidance what is the best software. I tried Ghost 9.0 by Symantec but it was too slow, and had too many bugs in it. Any other suggestions?

Did you check Symantec for updates?  What all are you updating, or are you imaging an entire Hard drive?

Hi enzymemedia,
Try "Symantec LiveState Recovery Desktop 3.0" (formerly V2i Protector Desktop), By Symantec/PowerQuest.  It can Image the Drive while you work in Windows and create incremental backups.  They have a demo Available.
