Yep, you're completely right.
If you purchase external HDD, it will serve you for a long time for best backup storage.
But if you don't have enough possibility to upgrade your PC with HDD. Hard Drive backup software
is what you need to my mind.
I use it for backup purpose, as it creates an exact image of HDD, and allows restore whole hard drive as well as individual files and folders. Also I keep one copy on HDD and another on CD (due to highest level compression it takes not much space).
