    What software makes a second copy of a data drive an then updates it
    later on. I am looking a best methods to back up my data drive which
    is my second drive in my computer. I was looking a software package
    called "second copy" but I don't know if that is best.
    Note, it takes over 24hr to fully copy my data drive so what backup
    stragies is best for me.
    Thank you,

    I highly reccommend Acronis True Image 10. It works with Vista as well as XP. I backup my "C" drive with the OS and programs on it in about 30 minutes. My data drive which contains about 87GB of data takes less than an hour to backup to an internal backup drive. I do this by making "exact images" of the drives. If any of my working drives go bad I simply replace and restore the image from my backup drive and I'm back in business as if nothing happened. Or, in case a file becomes corrupted or accidentially deleted, I can restore individual files very quickly. This program has saved my butt several times and it's well worth the price. NewEgg has it for $39.99 here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=1528708SF
    or you can get the downloadable version for only $31.99 at NewEgg.
