Josh, I have had little success with the Complete PC Backup feature. In the
meantime, I cannot say enough good things about Acronis True Image Home 11.
It retails for about $36 at NewEgg.com. It can do everything the Vista
backup software is supposed to do and lots more.
I haven't given up on the Vista backup routine. I tried it again last night
and failed twice. I've posted about it in the vista.general group, hoping to
get a reply to the specific error that I get, which is below. http://www.vistaguru.org/images/Vist...ckup.Error.jpg
