I cannot believe that Vista Home Premium does not support complete PC backup nor shadow copy. Why do they even have the program loaded?

I use Carbonite but am concerned that I don't have a secondary backup source because I heard that Carbonite sometimes has problems with restoring.

I would like to create a complete PC back up on DVD/CD and then be able to add new and changed files to this set. Is there a freeware to do this? What are my options?

Thank you

You can't create an image on DVD. Not enough space. You need external hard drive.

Acronis True Image: http://www.acronis.com/ - not free, but the best

Free alternatives:
- Macrium Reflect: http://www.macrium.com/ReflectFree.asp (highly recommended)
- DriveImage XML: http://www.runtime.o...veimage-xml.htm
- SelfImage: http://www.excelcia....N...icle&sid=21
- Paragon Drive Backup: http://www.paragon-s...ome/db-express/
