    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I'm trying to find a suitable backup program to backup all of my computer files on the second HDD in my laptop. I'd like to have something that will auto update any changes... probably on at least a weekly basis. I'm considering Genie Soft at 50 bucks... as well as Norton Ghost at 70 bucks...
