Which backup software would you recommend?

I am looking for a simple backup software for WinXP that I can backup my
data folders to a flash drive but I do not want to zip them up.

I figure if I lose a file I would be able to go to my backup and copy that
file back into a folder.

I could just copy the folders to a flash drive but I am finding I can only
copy one folder at a time.

Thanks in Advance.

There is no need to use any type of backup software...
it's just as simple as copying the data over.

The reason you can only select one folder at a time in windows explorer
is probably because you are using the *left* pane.

If you simply left click once on the C: drive...
all the folders will now appear in the right pane

just press the "shift" key and highlight all the folders you wish to copy

Install xp cd,other options,open file transfer wizard,set as old pc,select
files,
settings,etc for it to copy,copy to new folder you created,once its
thru,move to
flash drive or cd.Always run FTW from xp cd.

What are the things I should back up? I want to copy them onto CD but don't
understand the instructions below. Can I have easier directions? Thanks.

Hello Moe, I use Praetorian Guard at work. Some of our PC s are running on Win7 and XP so the OS won’t be a problem. It is very easy to use, because you can manage the backups centrally. It is easy to set a weekly, daily or whatever you want kind of schedule and let it work automatically.
