sort of - you can backup a few gigs of personal files, but what about your OS?

(i'm assuming you're on the free dropbox offer?)

Windows Backup is working fine for me. I checked it and it is backing up all of my documents, music, and pictures, plus it is making a system image every night.

Just think, if all PC users made regular images and backups, there would not be nearly as many postings on Sevenfourms.com!

There's plenty of grief going around not involving backups, heh. Having said that, yesterday I got myself another 2TB disk to backup my existing 2TB disk. Now I'm all set, unless the house itself burns down... in which case I'm screwed anyway

That is why you should have a networked hard drive, which is backed up by another drive that is backed up by a networked hard drive which in turn is also backed up by another drive. Hard-drive-ception.
