Reinstallation of XP

I'm thinking of reinstalling XP or doing a clean install of Vista. If I back up to an external drive using Acronis TI How do I proceed with loading the data back onto XP? Or, if I decide to load Vista, can I load the data back to that. Is there any great difference between Acronis TI and Ghost?

Hi Boghound. To backup data files you don't need Acronis or Ghost, simply copy the files to CD or DVD. I don't bother with backup software. On the rare occasions that I need to restore my pc I simply reformat and reinstall Windows and all other programs. I keep all my data files on a separate drive which makes the job very easy.
