One of the best is System Restore on your computer.
Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore.
I have Acronis True Image 10 and a External Hard Drive
(Maxtor One Touch)
Acronis now has a newer version 11
Acronis 10 backs up to what's called It's Secure Zone.
I backup Acronis also to the external hard drive.
If the computer won't boot normal you insert the Acronis CD and press
Start. It goes to and open Acronis for you to run your backup.
I know that this has been asked a million times but the threads I see are quite old, so at the risk of being told so, here I go.
I have a Dell 9150 desktop,running XP, it has; 3 open SATA connections, 1, PCI EXPRESS x1 slot open, 1, PCI EXPRESSx4 slot open and 1, PCI card slot open. I want to install either internaly or externaly, or both, a back up hard drive that I can back my whole system, OS and everything onto and for it to keep backing up everything that I put into the computer.
If I opt for an external one, which type of SATA card would I need to get?
If I opt for an internal one do I also need to get some software to run this setup?
Or, if I do both in and out for extra protection is there a learning experence that I need?
I have noticed from the looking that I have done that there are different types of drives, different types of SATA cards and I'm getting quite confused as to how this thing goes together.
Any help would be greatly apreciated!
Thank You all in advance.
