    What are the recommended backup utility packages that will do incremental
    data backups to CD (only about 3-500mb max). They arealways the same few
    folders that change data frequently. Just the changed files need to be done
    each time.

    Must be really quick, efficient & simple to use otherwise the user will not
    do the necessary frequent backups.

    The XP Pro built-in backup utility doesn't write to CD.
    A ghost/drive Image image file (of a drive) is way too long-winded for this
    purpose.
    CD burning program is also too many steps.

    Looking for something thatt can do it all in about 3 clicks - One to
    launchthe app, another to confirm the default selevction of folders and
    perhaps a third to finish. All the data is on a separate logical partition.
    folders.

    Any recommendations ?

    Backup MyPC - formerly by Veritas, now sold by Stomp. Check their supported
    equipment: http://www.stompsoft.com/backupmypc.html

    This can probably be automated to run at specific times with no user
    intervention.

    Pen Drive(512 mb) + Datakeeper 5. Comes free with Partition Magic from
    Powerquest(now Symantec) will do it on the fly.

    Fraank vaguely muttered something like ...
    If you have Nero 6. look into it's backup utility. I've just started using
    it in the last few days and it seems, so far, to be a pretty simple,
    purposeful, and handy app .. ;)

    Try coping and pasting the files from hour hard drive to a CdRW. Good luck.
