What is the best and most complete backup solution for one PC?
Posted on 2007-10-04
I am looking for the best way to backup everything on my PC including files, programs, user settings/preferences, etc... I've had a PC crash in the past and I'll I had was some backup data CD's with the files I needed. I then had to take quite some time with the new PC installing all my programs and configuring all the settings the way my old PC was.
So, what is the best way to backup as much of your current system as possible for quick re-install later if needed? Is there a way to back up everything including all your programs, settings, file/data folders and locations, etc...? If so, can I also set this up to initiate automatically at scheduled times?
I currenlty have Norton's Save and Restore and an external Maxtor One Touch III 300 GB Hard Drive, but would be open to purchasing something else if needed to accomplish the complete backup I'm looking to perform.
Thanks in advance for any tips.
