Re: Best way to back up a hard drive??
If you are looking for a cost effective solution, I would opt for an external hard drive and just use NT backup to backup nightly to the drive. You can buy an external usb/firewire 100 gb hd for like 100 bucks.
If you leave your machine on overnight, you can configure it so it backs everything up at like 4 am directly to the drive. 16 gigs shouldnt take too long to back up. Most likely under an hour. Best of all, NT Backup is free and very easy to use.
