Default Computer Backup.

I would like to make sure I don't lose all my stuff on my first computer, it's a Compaq Presario SR1500NX with Windows XP and the 2nd service pack.

I think I may have found something worthwhile, it's called Clickfree. I'm just about to search for some real world user reviews. I would appreciate anyones input on this Clickfree product. thank you in advance.

My suggestion is using acronis true image 2009. Very simple to use.

Sounds almost like an advertisement...

I'd probably prefer to buy a cheap external drive and back everything I want up to that, and possibly hold an image of the drive in its current state too like bruinator says.

I find after something happens, I like to start cleaner, so would only install what I want

I agree with Kage. Buy an external HD as well. I paid $20 for a 160GB one.

Oh, BTW, welcome to CF.

After my power supply blew up, I'm in need of a external drive too, as I'm really worried I'm going to lose all my data (I honestly though RAID 1 would be enough for now...haha).

SyncToy by Microsoft I believe syncs drives too, but from my knowings of the program, its not very intuitive.

Many thanks bruinator and Kage, the acronis was looking really good and I seriously wanted it, but then as usual I read some bad stuff about the product and was scared away. here I'll post some reviews. I found another item I'm really interested in as well, I'll make a new thread and if I could get your opinions on that I would really appreciate it. it's called Rebit.

If Rebit is another back up program, keep it in this thread.

It really doesn't get much better than this: Norton Ghost 14.0

Yes but I'm such a noob I wouldn't know what to back up, honestly the fewer choices I have the better lol... but thank you for that link, perhaps when I'm more adept.
