Nice review. I notice that all say compressed files. Can you turn that off? I hate compressed files. Can you back-up just individual folders?

I just got back from a long drive and thought about this some more. It occured to me that just copying to my external on a monthly basis is all I need to do. If I collected the few folder I want to back up into one folder or drive, I could just copy and paste.

Than all I need is a system recovery program. I will use Roxio for burning DVD's.
