Help, Backing up pc RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,
    I don't usually backup but I've re-installed my OS a few times recently so I want to backup my main drive and a secondary drive as well.

    My question is simply: 
    How do I back up the contents of two internal HDD's onto a different Harddrive, i.e. is there a program I can use?

    Thanks

    While the built in backup utility in windows does an adequate job there are 3rd party apps that are more flexible, easier to use, and have the ability to boot a dead OS.  My personal favorite is Acronis True Image Home which has a free trial.  IMHO it is worth the small price for the paid version as my data is important to me.
