Windows 7: Backup with Acronis True Image

Backup with Acronis True Image

I will be upgrading to W7 next month so I have a question about backups.

I have never used anything but the normal procedure for making backups
and I accidently ran across this Acronis True Image 2010. I went to their
website and read about it and it comes with a price of $50.

They were not very specific on what type of external storage is needed so
that is my question to the group.

I will most likely only use this True Image + ??? external storage 1 or 2
times so does the cost of both items justify the usage.

In Acronis, you can use whatever storage you want, external or external, as long as it has sufficient space. If you're only going to use it once or twice, you may want to consider using a free program, like this.

Acronis is one of the best backup softwares on the market right now. Paragon is also good, but I haven't used it.

You can keep your backups on another drive, or USB, split images on DVD or you can purchase online storage for a certain price.
