    Sometimes helping requires more than a Google search.

    I would strongly caution against using Windows XP's backup utility. In most cases you're limited to restoring files only onto Windows XP which is a problem if you upgrade or move to a new computer.

    Unless you don't have much data, it's unlikely that all your files will fit on a CD or DVD. A full image backup definitely won't.

    I like Cobian as a backup program. It's free and easy to use.
