View Full Version : Backing up Windows Data

09-12-2009, 01:07 PM
I have a Laptop with Win XP and desktop with Vista
and need to backup data to a external hard drive

I primarily want to backup user profiles (every subfolder/file)
from both laptop and desktop on to the Ext hdd.

Also the hdd on laptop is partioned and has a "d" drive in which i
have some data too under few folders

What is the easiest and quickest way of backing this up
routinely say every month? It doesnt have to be fully automated i.e i can initiate it manually and let it do it.

I dont want to use Windows backup. I prefer little
batch file that i can run and it will do it. Is this
easy to do? or even a third party software provided its free

Any other tips would be great

One I use on customers PC's as well, Fbackup (http://www.fbackup.com/) - you can set it to back up where and when you want, or do it manually - free as well.
