I am wondering what the next backup tool is i can use.
Currently I have a second IDE hard drive and use two programs.
1) back2zip which is free and automatic and backs up my personla files and data
2) Norton Ghost 9.0 which saves an image.
However when either of these programs are running they use a lot of resources.
I've looked at tape drives but never used one yet, i've considered reinstalling and use raid so that there are two drives permanently storing my data.
I dont want to spend too much, but I stil want a god solution. Perhaps im better with an external backup device which is why I thought about tapes. I have also played around with www.logmein.com
backup program, but I really want to secure my data as an image like norton does.
I've lost my confidence with the newer versions of norton as 2003 was great and very reliable but version 9.0 during my last breakdown could not restore my most up to date image.
I am using a 80gb maxtor IDE drive and have a 160gb ide backup drive at the moment
My actual used space is around 26gb but id like to allow for up to 50gb for future growth.
