In the past, my backup strategy consisted of periodically copying user document folders to CDs or DVDs. I recently acquired a new HP laptop running Windows 7 and thought maybe I should try using the Backup/Restore utility that came with it. I ran backup but I have some serious reservations. 1) I have no idea exactly what got backed up. Is there anyway to find out? 2) I searched in vain for some way to restore individual files. Im told by HP support that the only thing one can do with these backups is to restore the entire thing. Are there other backup system that I might consider?
