    Back Up (Vista Home Premium)

    This has me really confused.
    I want to do a new file back up using the Windows backup feature of Vista. Earlier I did a backup of only some of the files but now I want to start a completely new back up of all my files. I do not want to update the earlier one that I did. Is there a way to do this without the programme keep trying to take you back to a previous backup?
    Also are dvd's available in the market that are already formatted for this function ... it takes an age to format!
    And does anyone know the advantages of backing up files using the 'Vista' way instead of the easy way using eg Roxio
    Regards
    Ron

    Re: Back Up (Vista Home Premium)

    Your best bet is to back up to an external HD or different PC. Messing with cd/dvd is a pain in the rear. The 'Vista' way of backup is Microsoft's attempt to have something included in the operating system so the user can easily backup important data. Most people in the Lounge will recommend a more fully featured backup solution such as Acronis - true Image Home or Norton Ghost 12.0: System Restore - PC Backup Software with Acronis being preferred by more Loungers. Especially if you are accumulating a lot of digital information (i.e., pictures, music, videos) you may also want to investigate Windows Home Server.
