I have found this incredibly informative thread on Dell of all places (thank you google) that talks about a variety of backup solutions revolvoing around an external hard drive and various software (eg. Retrospects Dantz is bundled with Maxtor One-Touch, vs. Ghost vs. some others).
I am closing in on a solution which will involve occasional complete images via ghost and then frequent incremental backups. I have a 160 gig hard drive with 3 partitions.
The various Maxtor options look great for a single hardware solution – encased USB2 or Firewire hard drive. And they these drives got a “storage product of the year“ award from an industry magazine.
Gha – why do I have to learn all this stuff? Oh yeah, cause I’m a geek and it’s fun!
