I had a problem and had to reinstall my OS plus all of my software. I did have a backup, but now realize I needed a True Image which would have saved me countless hours. My question is this. Would I be well served to keep a mirror image via True Image as well as a backup of individual files using Retrospect Express (Maxtor One Touch)? My understanding is that True Image's mirror doesn't work too well at the individual file level. I don't mind spending the extra $$ for a second external hdd if that's what I need - anything but the countless hours it has taken to get back up to where I was before. Thanks for your thoughts.
