    Hi. I've been Googling and have checked various sites but cannot make up my
    mind as to which would be the best for me. I wish to allow my system (XP
    Home) but create timed automated back-ups of my C drive to another HDD. C
    Drive 40Gb of which 20 occupied but I expect to be up to 30Gb soon (scanning
    in many historic personal photos at present). The second drive is intended
    to be purely for back-up and therefore at least at present should be capable
    of 4 back-ups before I hope automated overwrite of the eldest back-up.

    Has anyone experience of these on XPhome? - do they do what they say? Is
    there any nasty hidden secrets like having to play with the Register - a
    world I fear and do not wish to enter often?

    Would be grateful for your views and thanks in advance.

  2. I like Acronis after having used a couple of incarnations. It allows
    creation of a boot CD and not just boot floppies.

    Acronis every time.

    Ease of use, mounting the images to look in them, everything.

    Thanks Peter /Eric.
    Your views are appreciated. I've not heard any adverse comment about Power
    Quest or (Bloatware) or Norton's offers - that's interesting!& ?

    You didnt ask about Powerquest.....Ghost or Acronis cant do RAID imaging,
    Powerquest can though...

    mmm? Thx for this.

  7. Well, Norton is good. No question about it. But I like being able to boot
    off of a CD (especially when I have no floppy!!) and in my opinion, the
    restore time with Acronis is quite a bit faster than with Ghost.
