The current system I have for backing up files to a partition on my spate HD is somewhat labour intensive - can anyone recommend a good programme that is simple yet allows you to be selective in what is backed up?

I personally don't believe in backup software. I just remain very organized. Makes it much, much easier.

I always use XP Pro Backup... system backup on ASR and separate partition backups.......then selective backups if / when required.
Consistently reliable after many recoveries due to bugs. virus etc.
No extra cost is the key !

Xp-pro offers the NT backup utility (system tools). This utility rocks! You can use it just for data backup, but it also quite nicely backs up system state data (register hives etc).

I guess that where it really becomes handy is when you have a system crash or if you want to migrate yr disk to another system. NTbackup can restore yr settings on a brand new xp install etc. etc.

And: It's FREE.

Have fun!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
