Default Backup software

Im going to be backing up certain files off of computers and reformatting them. I really never backed up much files but since other people want certain files backed up like pictures and games when I reformat their computer I have to .... SO I was wondering what software would be the best for that. Im thinking of using an external hard drive. It just seems a little hard to do since I will only be getting limited info of what to back up like... pictures and games. Your input is greatly appreciated

If you're using Windows XP Professional, it has an excellent back-up tool included!

Ditto. Straight forward and simple.

If you want another app, then Maxtor has a "One Touch" series. Software is fairly easy to setup and it is one touch after that. Read about it...

But really, Windows is simple.

I use that before but it didn't make the floppy so I could access it. so I couldn't restore from it
