    Hi guys,

    OK, Right now, I have my laptop exactly the way I want it. I would like to save and back up so I don't loose everything in the event of a disaster. So which is the easiest way to back the machine up? I never really have understood the proper way of backing up data. So a little help would be great!

    I have 30 gig on my drive so how do I get that on one disc.

    Thank you for any help in advance.

    lots of ways. Buy a an external hd and enclosure for about $80 bucks, and back the whole shebang up.

    damn.....tired.....version 2.0 was up ALL FREAKIN' NIGHT, plus a minor car wreck today, plus the pain meds for the arm, brain ain't functioning right.

    Deeger: It was synctoy from xp powertoys. JohnWill has the link in his post, it's incredibly easy to use, small download, and pretty much idiot proof, as I got it to work first crack.

    Get Acronis and image the whole drive.

    Yep, for an exact copy, MysticEyes has the right idea. :) You can get Acronis True Image from www.newegg.com for $30 on a downloaded purchase, do a search for Acronis.
