I've used the trial version tonight and it's gone very well... Have a couple of questions for some of the older users here: Small office, three Dell computers on P2P network and want some comfort as to backup. I worry about fire and theft along with HD failure. Each computer has a duplicate harddrive (SATA's), same spec, etc....For external backup, have two Maxtor USB2 120gig external harddrives which leave the office and we alternate those. Want to "mirror" each machine daily to the duplicate harddrive and then use external backups weekly. My goal for the externals are to be able to replace a machine (or failed harddrive) and clone the virgin machine/drive back to the failed machine/drive status -- quickly... with minimal WINXP PRO hassles or reinstallation hassles. From what I've read, appears I can do daily incrementals to the internal duplicate drives (to safeguard failure) and weekly full backups to externals for fire/theft. Restoration of an image does make bootable drive doesn't it? Should I be doing "image" backups by partition or "clone drive" backups? Any hints / tips or mis-direction here on where I'm trying to head? Thanks for any help you can send my way. Oh....and can this be automated by command line (bat file) or do I have to work inside the "scheduling" portion of the program? Thanks... okcnrha "If you can turn the car, you're not going fast enought..."
