I've heard Norton Ghost is very good, but I don't know much about it so need someone to confirm.

Default Re: Backup Software.

The thing about backup software for Windows 95 and later is that if you do a full system restore, don't you have to re-install Windows and your backup app. first, or can you just copy your backups from your CDs/disks/ext. HD/whatever to your primary HD like you could with DOS thru Windows 3.11?
