Just for backing up files selectively, or for backing up the entire drive including the operating system (ie a disk image)?

I suggest going to Microsofts Backup Tutorial and follow the steps to do a Backup to a External Drive and also it will guide you on how to do a Scheduled Backup even at night.

Another way you can do a Backup is by using DVD’s. This method is just as effective and can be done using the same steps as above.
Please let me know if I can answer any further questions you may have as I am always happy to assist.

I agree with rshaffer if you have that feature. If you don't ,you will need your Windows CD to install it, and that's not always available. I just bought a 1.5 seagate external USB. It a has a feature that will back up your files with a incremental feature and can be scheduled. To me that's the way to go if you don't have the back up feature in Windows; which I don't have. I also use a freeware program called Macrium Reflect to back up my OS at least once a month. It also has a feature that allows you to mount a image in windows explorer, which you can copy and paste from if you don't want to reinstall the whole image. I hope I have helped and not stepped on anyone.

Hello! You can read about the back up feature here. I don't use the file feature as I don't have that many files. I back up the whole OS once a month!
