Hi,

What has everyone found to be the best way of backing up PC's and laptops. This is mainly for my mobile users who have everything on thier laptops. These files are from PST's to random files all over. If i do an NT backup for them it takes a few hours and so they wont do that because of the time concern.

I just though that i would see what other people are doing. If i use image software would i then be able to replace certain files or is it only to replace the entire image. Basically i am trying to find a way i can the quickly backup once a week with preferably no cost and little time.

thx in advance

Imaging software makes a new image. I'd use bootit-ng as imaging software, as it supports USB drives well. save the images to USB with it. It is also relatively fast. There is also a utility you can download from the bootit-ng site with which you can extract single files or folders from the image files.
