Barry,After doing some research in preparation for making my requests to Santa, I believe a Maxtor one-touch USB external hard drive would be a good choice for doing backups.
These drives feature a one-button backup process which may suit your needs, but I have heard that the software is not entirely JAWS friendly, so you may need sighted assistance when configuring it.
There is a very JAWS friendly back up program called "Casper." It creates a bootable backup of your complete hard drive. Casper is Designed exclusively for Windows XP, Casper XP makes it a snap to create and maintain a fully bootable backup of your Windows XP hard disk. http://www.fssdev.com/ Future Systems Solutions is the company that markets Casper. They also make a program for Windows 98.

USB hard-drive looks like a good bet.Does anyone know whether the backup software that they come with is JFW accessible - any recommendations for makes with known JFW friendly software?
