I am interested in suggestions or ideas on peoples current back up routine? I am using a laptop so have been doing this manually by copying and pasting the C:\Users\Username folder onto an external hard drive. I do this once a month and back up any crtical files such as photos take on phones etc. get uploaded to Skydrive in the meantime.
I have downloaded EaseUS ToDo back up which looks like a better solution, although I believe this program compresses the files into a single file rather than copying all the contents to another drive.
Any suggestions/best practice for backing up? Backing up everything to cloud is not practical as I have about 200GB worth of data.
