Just make sure if you want to do a WHOLE system back up that you use a registry backup as well. Because just the Windows folders isn't going to do a whole lot for you

If you are just doing a backup, and do not plan on reformatting, then the external hard drive or Nero Ghost are good options. However, if you are making the backup with the intent to reformat then i would suggest that you back up crucial files and save all serial numbers, and then just reload everything. I find that this is better if you are reformatting because it starts your system off fresh and speeds it up significantly. Hope this helps, Dave.
