-=PCTechTalk=- Re: Backing up

Yea, but not easy or cheap.  A second hard drive is a good option.  Fast
backup, no OS to possibly corrupt it, and *not likely* to be the target for
a virus attack.  Get an HD about 2/3 or same size as your HD, do a full
backup or image to it, then burn a copy of it to CD.  Then do daily
incremental backups and when you get to where your system has major changes
or additions, do another full and burn to CD.  It can be scheduled in most
backup programs, no user input is needed, and it's very fast.

rumoured to have uttered....

          |  Hi all,
          |  
          |  Not sure how others do reliable backups, but every Monday, I
          |  back up 6 gb and it's a massive pain, swapping round 10 cd's
          |  every time, is there a way to just back them all up in one go
          |  some how ?
          |
