    Hey Trust,

    There are some ways ,but they cost,... such as Movable Harddrives, Tape-drives, or... a server
    but I think you already thought of those.

    Just a small example of some back-up systems, but there are many more other brands.

    It depends on what you need to back up, for example Adaptec Go-Back creates restore points by backing up the most essential files (%SystemRoot%, system32 and such) so you could try backing up your windows folder and when (if) something happens you can just restore it...

    hmm, i was just wondering about this system restore thing with Win XP. it works really good and i havent had any trouble with it. except that if i repair windows or something major happens i lose all the restore points. what and where are these files. and can i just put these files on a cd and put them back where ever i got them from to restore a systeM?

    Restore files are in your root drive (C:\ for most users) on a hidden folder called _RESTORE
