    I want to start doing automatic backups with xp's backup utility, for a home user that does pics and music. should i do one full backup then weekly incrementals or differentials, or monthly full backups. any body have a good backup stratagy that would not be hell to recover in the event of a disaster. thank you.

    First rule of backup = Never use Microsoft's backup that is in Windows. Use The best one to use is Acronis True Image.

    Believe me it is worth it. And you will not be sorry

    it can setup automatic backups too.
    when your harddrive commits suicide, you will be sooooo glad to have an image.
