    Programs to Back up Windows

    Does anyone have any suggestions on Open Source \ Freeware programs for backing up Windows in comparison to the Commercial counterparts ? What about commercial counter parts does anyone have any suggestions ? There was one commercial product I came across but forgot the name that was better then True Image and Norton Ghost but I did some long searching today and couldn't find the name of it.

    Why not invest in a dedicated backup drive? You're going to need somewhere to staore all your data and most of them nowadays come with software. http://www.clickfree.com/ make a good range of backup drives.

    I know about click free, although I was looking for software that can do the task.

    Personally I like robocopy + jungledrive + Amazon S3, easy enough and offsite.

    Ok, there won't be a repeat of this thread again I forget what I write on forums sometimes then when you don't follow certain rules on forums you get blasted (not saying anyone has on this forum)

    All these rules !!! The Internet is becoming a little over the top !

    You could always subscribe to your own posts and then go to your User CP
    and checkout your own posts so you could follow yourself on Site Point

    It's kinda like following someone on Twitter, but it's Site Point and it's you
    that you'd be following to see what kinda of messages you've already posted

    You could even answer yourself or make suggestions to yourself that you
    might want to try to see how it all works out.

    Yeah, you know those beef jerky commercials where those guys are "messin with Sasquatch" and it's all very funny until they end up getting slapped around by Sasquatch

    Jack Link's Beef Jerky.

    You can see the commercials online at:
    http://www.MessinWithSasquatch.com

    They're pretty funny, unless yer a fan of Sasquatch
    cause these guys are being mean to him.

    But, in the end Sasquatch usually slaps
    'em around and teaches them a lesson
