Well, is there a free backup program available? I need one since Seagate Discwizard is telling me to buy something every time I open it.

Hello thepivotstudent,

Other than the free built-in backup and system image features included in Windows 7, the free program Macrium Reflect is a great choice.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

In addition to Brinks answer, Karens Replicator is great for backing up your personal stuff. I use both.

I'm using Cobian backup (Cobian Backup) since a few weeks and so far it's very good at this. I particularly like the automatic backup schedule it can do.

Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll download them all and keep them. Although I've dealt with Macrium before. I couldn't do any backup, just make an system image of my drives.
