Barry, All,

I use the Windows backup utility.  I've always done this with some trepidation, as I've never heard anyone on this list with a good word to say for it, so this isn't a recommendation, but more of an attempt to find out what I've been missing all these years, that is eventually going to leap out and bite me.  I find that it is easily configurable to back up the files you want backed up without wasting space on those that you don't, and I believe (though I haven't tried it recently) that you can back up registry settings and create a boot disk to get you out of severe issues with the operating system.  So like Barry, I'd be interested to know what I should be using instead, and why.

Hi all

I'm currently running Karen's replicator as a back up manager, but I would like a back up utility that, as well as files and folders, backs up settings, application data and Outlook files.  Is there such a thing?

Ideally, I'd like a free programme but the priority would be that it is accessible.
