GeneralConfession: Backup PinmemberC-P-User-321-Feb-13 6:00 
I do not have any backup scheme in place on my home computer.
 
I repent.
 
Now what ?
 
Every backup scheme I've tried before has always been marked by
 
-- Complexity
-- Annoyance
-- Hideously Inadequate restore procedures
-- Space Invaders (I was around before CD-RWs existed)
-- Time Bandits (So many rules you had to sit there and run it yourself)
 
I used some freeware backup apps, and the authors of these should receive the highest acclaim. Indeed, they should be able to find paid work within a month if not an hour, should they need it.
 
Still, what will really work, and what will really catch on, is something where...
 
-- Plug in a USB cable
-- Pop up the app
-- Click once
-- Go to work
-- Come home, spare disk goes in the closet
 
So how much will such a thing cost ?
 
Who's making this kind of stuff these days ?
