Default Laptop's backup issue

Hi all,

I hope you guys can help me with the predicament I'm facing.

I have a laptop that has a 80gb hdd in it and I had already partitioned it into 20gb for Drive C: (for OS and programs) and 60gb for Drive D: (for my data).

Right now, I have about 85gb(and counting) worth of data. Currently, I've already backed my data in DVD-RWs. Unfortunately it's very tedious to back them up in DVD-RWs as DVD-RWs are not the fastest media to save (burn) data to.

I happen to have an external hdd (250gb) and I plan to use Norton Ghost's schedule backup option to backup my data to this hdd, as I believe it can save me plenty of time.

Question is: My laptop's hdd has only 60gb of space and I have 85gb of data. How can I use Norton Ghost's schedule backup to backup ALL my data, considering that my data are dynamic i.e. changing all the time, in nature AND they are also not in one centralized location (e.g. in Drive D?

Thanks for your feedbacks and help in advance.
