Well I know that NONE of my back up disks worked when I went to re-install software and files. If not for the second HD having most of my files, albeit way out of date, I don't know what I would have done. Most likely recommended that no one EVER BUY A GOD DAMN HP PRODUCT! Their customer service is rancid beyond comparission. I will bet that the little indian guy who "helped" me to destroy my computer laughed his can barely speak english *** right off. "Ah you stupid American!"

Out sourcing tech support to another country is a bad bad bad idea.

You'll get far better tech support on the #spaceempires IRC channel...

I recommend the freeware version of SyncBack for all your important data backup needs. For creating a functional system back up, Acronis True Image is highly recommended at the DSLReports Software Forum. Also suggested there is freeware tool DriveImage XML which requires XP or Windows 2003.

I'm partial to Norton Ghost if you can spring for the second external hard drive. If you can spring for the 2nd internal hard drive go RAID mirror and hope the case doesn't catch fire! I've recovered my system in 23 minutes using Ghost!
