Back up Advice please

Firstly I am what I believe is known as a siver surfer and I struggle sometimes with pc's, I have an Evesham pc with XP and am going to buy a freecom 500gb external hard drive, are the software products such as Acronis True Image or Ghost easy to use, or maybe there other ones to consider, I am one of these people that havent backed up anything so could you give me some advice please, thank you.

Each package has their own supporters, Rebanut, I prefer Acronis True Image, but both are pretty good and worth the money. Yes they are relatively easy to use, Acronis comes with a comprehensive manual which can be a chore to get through, but a lot of members here use it, so you'll never be short of straightforward, and easy to understand, help. Not as many members use Ghost.

Excuse my ignorance but whats the difference between ATI 11 and ATI home 2009.

Very little, just a name change but if you have vista you need 11 or home 2009.

I, too am a Silver S, though there's not much of the silver left. I have been fiddling with computers since before my silver was brown and luxuriant and last year I got Acronis TI. Took me a while to get it going but now find it's marvellous. Go for it.

Well mine is still silver and I thank you for your help and all the other help too, this is a great forum if only some of the knowledge would stick in my brain, thanks again.
