Backing up your photos

Hi all,

I have been backing up my whole picture library and Lightroom 4 catalogs. Each time I am backing up I am using 200gb ish and it takes hours as its copying the whole of the picture library eachtime.

Obviously this is not the best way to do it - can anyone recommend a better and cheaper way to back up the photos?

I am moving over to windows home premium 7 64 bit from windows vista 32 bit - so am a bit wary about windows back ups - im guessing you cannot back up vista (i.e. the backup your computer optiion) and windows 7 recognises the data like vista wont read an xp backup. I thought it was better to drag and drop really anyway?

But constantly backing up everything that has not changed is just silly and wastes alot of space. How do you smarter peoples do it?

Many thanks
