Well you could try this program.http://www.backupans.../freewinbackup/
Caveat Emptor here as i have my own backup methods.
I personally keep a few hard drives around so i can backup everything i think is necessary. I just hook the spare drive up as a slave and transfer any files i want to save. I usually will copy and paste whole folders between the drives. I'll then disconnect the spare drive and store itin a cabinet in the desk until needed. Any important programs and files i always backup to cd's or dvd's at the same time. I still have and use lots of programs you just cant find anymore like Cool Edit 2000, the older Filemaker Pro program, and others that work very well even nowadays.
CD burners are cheap at $20 and DVD burners are not that much more expensive at $29 so i think it would be of interest to buy one so you could backup anything you want to save.http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827106997http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827152076
Recently i was paid $200 to spend a day to get data off a drive that supposedly had lost its partition information. What i found was a disgruntled EX-employee has passworded the drive in question. I have methods of getting by passworded files so it took me 6 hours to get everything he wanted( don't ask for my methods, please). I should have charged more but that was the price i gave him for a simple "retrieve data" on the drive. I let it slide because it may lead to other things, now that i am a proven miracle worker, with this business person.
