Windows 7: Back-up Software

Back-up Software

First,I am really bad with computers. Now,I have read the section on Reflect and it is too hard for me. Told you I was bad. I am looking for software,preferably freeware,that will back up my system daily. I would like it to just back-up new files and any changes to my system. I have been to Gizmo,CNET Major Geeks and others. I am just a bit overwhelmed. Can someone suggest a program for me. The simpler the better. Probably asking too much,but my portable hard drive is on its way for warranty repair and I am in need of this help. Thanks very much.

Macrium Reflect Free (here is a good tutorial on how to use Macrium Reflect) is actually the simplest, most reliable backup program one can use.

If you don't have too much data on your computer (under 200GB) and have a broadband internet connection, you might consider using Carbonite to back up your data (it won't back up your system files, you need an imaging program like Macrium Reflect for that). The $60 a year program will backup your data online. If you have over 200GB , it will still backup your data but at a slower upload speed. They also have higher priced plans that will also provide local backups on an external HDD in addition to online.
