We all know that backups are important, right? It's not if your hard drive will fail, it's when. Yet we don't all do them regularly because it's a pain in the butt, right?
Well here's a practical solution for Windows users. Pierre Clouthier of Progeny Software has a solution that he uses daily and he has offered it to others. You will need a copy of Nero disk burning software, and MD5 checksum software, such as Advanced CheckSum Verifier. The Windows batch file will perform the entire backup automatically. All you need to do is load a blank DVD every day.
