I have a home user / business user who wants to backup his data.  

I he used a one button backup device / hard drive to backup windows xp, is this sufficient?

The reason I ask is ive tried to restore someones pc using system restore before and they have had a torjan virus stored in there.  

And if he uses a one button backup solution that I presume backs up the hard drive and data.  he could potentially backup viruses etc.

What device would be recommended on the market at the moment?  and if this device only made one single backup at a time and was re-written over the top then what if there was a major system crash during the backup?
