Backup Software

Postby sjohn » 09 Dec 2009, 09:58

Hey guys,

I was wondering if there is a backup program (like acronis, etc) that allows you to restore completely from USB. As you all know we dont have a CD drive built into our computers so having this option is ideal. I have been doing some searching and reading but I have not found a solution that is exactly what i want. any suggestions?

What operating system are you using? What type of USB device?

Yes back up your system...

Burn it on CD, print it all, anything...

I just started my family research and my drive quit in my computer. Yeah my computer was 12 years old but still it hurt to have the old girl quit.

I had stored alot of my info on CD and I used some online storage..so I didn't loose too much.

I should have my new computer in a few days and this time I am getting an external drive for storage of important items.

Bottom line? Back up your stuff!!!!
