I’ve been working on backing up my whole system, now that I have my TY’s, LG, and Nero 6.6 working in perfect harmony. I’ve been using Nero’s backup program, and so far it’s been great. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to copy files that are in active use, which then brings me to my inquiry:
What is the easiest way to make a complete restorable DVD backup of Windows and my entire C directory of programs, etc.?
What I am hoping for is an archive of 3 or so discs (to span the 10 gigs of files I’ve got going). Then, in case of hard drive failure, I can …
- install a temporary XP to a WINDOWS-TEMP directory
- copy everything from DVD back over
- kill WINDOWS-TEMP and let my backup run things from there
Surely, this is a reasonable thing to do, or is there a better way to approach it? Either way, what software would be most appropriate for such a task?
Thanks as always,
