Question Backup software: which one?

Hi,

I'm thinking of starting backing up my data. I'm not sure which software to use and I wondered if anyone could recomend any.

I'm using XP pro and I want to back up to an internal IDE hard drive. I also need to be able to schedule backups.

Thanks in advance,

Thanks alot, I'll check that one out. One thing though, does it compress the backup or is it the same size as the files it contains?

Doesnt XP pro have a intergrated backup utility?

Failing that you could just sit there for half an hour and drag and drop everything.

Yes, it does but like I said I need to be able to schedule the backups. And thanks for the drag and drop suggestion, but I don't really have the time

Thanks anyway though
