Backing up is easy, restoring can often be a PITA. Make a plan to test the backup every X amount of backups otherwise they are useless.
 
robocopy -- its built into windows (just not XP) just make a batch telling it what to include/skip

even has features like inter-packet gap to stop network/internet lag and a lot more

try it some time

[citation][nom]egilbe[/nom]I hope you were joking. Raid 0 is not backup and it's more prone to drive failure.[/citation]

RAID10 is not RAID0... read again !

Backup software are computer programs used to perform backup; they create supplementary exact copies of files, databases or entire computers. These programs may later use the supplementary copies to restore the original contents in the event of data loss.http://www.vertexonlinebackup.com/cms/

Why not review Vibosoft free Data backup software, I used it for one years, easy to use and powerful. It can completely make a copy of system partition, backup all partitions of your portable devices and clone entire hard disk or USB drive. What’s more, it can also effectively and selectively backup various of data types, like: photos, videos, audios, office document and software application. I'm a user, I just hope you can shhare more userful app for people . Vibosoft is what I want to recommend to you. Here: http://www.vibosoft.com/free-data-backup-windows.html

I really like Argentum Backup (www.argentuma.com) as a Windows backup tool. Found it to be very fast and easy to use, even for a beginner like me.
