What programs can I use to make an EXACT backup that I can run from an external HD?
I want it to backup all the registry, installed programs, files, remembered passwords, browsers + plugins, settings, everything. And I want to be able to just run the backup and it will put the backup on without any problems.
The reason I want to do this is because I have my computer in a state where it is running fast, I've uninstalled all the crap and personalised it as much as I need to. Every now and then i'll muck something up or my laptop will encounter an error and i'll have to format, re-install media center, remove all the dell progs, install all my old ones and all this is after an hour of backing up!
P.S. Can norton ghost do all this? Can I put it in to a partition easily? Can I add files to the backup once it's been made?
