    Good morning. Looking for opinions on backup/imaging software. I already own Norton Ghost 2003, but I don't like it. I want backup software that allows you to backup individual folders, at a set time during the day/week, without having to exit Windows, and easy to use (no resource hogs).

    It would also be an added bonus if the software offers encryption/password protection.

    Thank you in advance.

    ViceVersa Pro

    I've been using ViceVersa Pro to mirror my main drive to a secondary
    drive for several months now. The Pro version was a bit pricey but I've
    been pretty satisfied with it for what I needed/wanted. They also offer
    less-full-featured versions of the app for correspondingly less bucks/pounds/euros. There is an eval period so you can try before you
    pay. BTW, not affiliated with the creators in any way - just a satisfied
    customer.

    Acronis "True Image" is the best that I've found.
