I recently started the free trial for Memopal and discovered that you can not control the time of day that the backup occurs. I'd like to find an off site backup that you can specify the time of day you'd like the backup to occur and that has the features of Memopal
Just wondering what is the bare minimum that I need to back up to restore the computer onto a new drive should the C: drive fail? As in programs and data.Do I need to back up the MBR and all of C:.
I understand the backing up of data. It is the programs and stuff that has me tricked
Do the online version allow for this or because of the size a program or even Windows backup is sufficient to use. As long it is onto another drive. I guess an external HD that can be disconnected the way to go.
In fact I am going to move your question to that thread.

The best way to go on this is with an imaging program, such as Shadow Protect. It puts everything you need into the image, so you can recreate the partition, mbr, and disk signatures if needed. I routinely image, and to test my images, I delete the volume which essentially wipes out the disk, and then do a full restore. These images can also be mounted as a disk, and you can retrieve individual files.
Depending on your needs Shadow Protect has a unique feature, that automatically takes incrementals as frequently as every 15 minutes. At the end of the day it collapse those into a daily incremental. All automatically, and you never feel it run. The incrementals typically take 10 seconds or so.
Use a backup like shadowprotect (I use trueimage) and backup to a removeable USB. Preferably backup daily to an internal hard drive and monthly to a removeable USB drive that you store offsite. If you want use mozy free 2gig to backup just your most critical data, for me it's NT indicator code and the backups I do from NT, plus my excel spreadsheets, trading plans, etc. THis is what I do. Triple protection for critical files, double protection for everything.
