    Best Backup Software?

    What's your recommendation for the best (free?) backup software? I have a 2 Terabyte Seabrook FreeAgent GoFlex external drive I got on Seagate's Clearance site which came with Memeo software. Is that any good, or should I use Easeus or Cobian, or something else? I want to make an image once a month or so, & then a full back-up with incrementals. I'm also going to use SkyDrive for additional backup. Also, do I need to keep all the incrementals, of just the last one? I just want to back up my pictures, music, tax files, some documents, etc., in addition to the image. I only have 86.8 Gigs used on my C: drive to give you an idea of how much I'll have to back up.

    Roger,

    Although I currently use the Pro version, I used the Free version of Macrium Reflect for several years w/o problem. Before that I used Acronis and was happy with it but I did encounter a few problems. I've never had a problem with Macrium Reflect in either version. HTH
