Try Nero 7 Ultra it has a great backup util and I believe Windows XP has it's own backup solution, Start - all programs - accessories - system tools then run backup. There are other methods, but these should do for what you've described.


AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+

She might not be able to put everything on discs, depending on what she has on her pc. Could be better off buying a small external HDD. Or evan an internal one?
