    I run XP Home and have 32 gig used on my machine.

    I have never backed up my system, but figure it's probably wise to do so. Any sugesstions on what I should use? I can burn to DVD or CD.

    There are many opinions on what to use, there are some programs about that work just fine for a backup image. I use Drive Image 2002, and there is also Norton's System Ghost.

    Which one is best can be answered 1000 times on this forum and it pretty much all comes down to what you feel comfortable with.

    I would suggest you do a search for Drive Image 2002 or Norton
    System Ghost on this forum and give the threads a read.

    Here's some info on the products:
    Drive Image here

    Norton Ghost here
  3. reboot

    reboot Guest

    Nero will burn a backup set, automatically spanning as many disks as you need.
    Be prepared, a backup of this size will take some time, and quite a few disks.

    I would like to recomend this program,
    Acronis TrueImage is faster than both Ghost or Drive Image. Also using this program there is no need for booting into DOS any longer.
