I'm looking for something to automate the process, and would prefer to do it on the cheap. Right now, I'm just literally copying over the important files onto a portable HD. I used to use Nero Backup, but found it to have some issues when I went to test the archive. I'm backing up about 20 GB of data on a semi-regular basis (not as often as I need to as it takes so damn long). What can you guys recommend?
