I’ve had a PC since the 80’s, and every time I’ve had a total hard drive failure, I’ve pledge to do a better job of backing up my system.
Of course, that only works for the first few weeks after I’ve reinstalled the OS. After a few weeks, when the pain of loosing my data is a distant memory, I start forgetting about the backup.
Now that I have to reinstall my OS for the 20th + time, I want to make sure to setup a backup system that is completely automated, and easy to recover.
I also want a system that has layers, so that I can choose a specific week or month to recover from, just incase there are viruses in the latest backup.
What is the best backup system for a Windows 2003 machine that is free, or that cost less then $100?
