So what do the exalted ones recommend as backing up software? I'm just a rookie so I was thinking that just doing a search for any files modified on a given date and then burning the to a CD would suffice. Bet that's too simple, isn't it? There's probably some nifty freeware that comes highly recommended, like all that SpyBot, AdAwareSE and stuff that we use.
And another query......everything I read warns that screwing up the registry can be "bad". So if I did that, how would I get my backed up version into the computer to fix it anyway?
