For 2009, resolve to back up your computer files, and do it

The new year has brought new resolutions, including a question from a reader who asked my recommendation for the best ways to back up a PC.
My real recommendation is that you actually do it.
I was doing some renovations in my house over the holidays and moved my main computer from one floor to my new home office on another floor and when I turned it back on I got a flurry of blue screens of death.
(Apple users, commence snickering.)

I have to pass this on!
I had some small problems with the time Acronis took to run, after installing Windows 7.
I decided not to bug hunt and started to look around for another program. I found this one, I don't know why, but it seems to be free. Wortks like a charm, and twice as fast as Acronis. I am sorry I paid for Acronis now.
You can even make a boot CD with it!
