Last Modified: 2010-04-03

I have a laptop with a 40GB-Harddisc (2 Partitions, 12GB & 26GB)

Now I have ordered a 300GB-USB2-Harddisc and I want to use it also as Backup-Drive!

What I want to do:

In every evening, the backup-tool should backup my whole Laptop-Harddisc.

What tool would you use for this?

Acronis trueimage.


Or one of the free utilities similar to ghost on the UBCD, which has many other usefull tools on it:


These free tools will of course not be as easy to use as acronis is, but they should do the job just as well.
