    sad Help me decide best backup

    I use a drive bay and switch out various drives/OS's. I need to come up w/a good backup solution but don't want to spend on software. I have 1 HD 2/3 full using 7 Premium, 1 320GB w/XP and not much else and 1 500GB HD I want to install another 7 on that's empty.

    I'm deciding on various free Backup appl versions and don't want to use the internet. I burn data files and media to CD/DVD. Can I create partitions on 2 or all 3 HD's and backup one OS to one of the other HDs' partiton (externally) AND set that B.U. partiton so it can't be accessed when I use it internally (to run another OS)? Encryption, file table, etc.? It would obviously defeat the purpose if a virus could mess up the backup partition.

    Also, I'm agreeing w/some who think cloning is best but that would take up a lot of space. Yet all imaging involves compression, right? I'm pretty certain my Ghost and Partition Magic versions aren't compatible w/7. Is there some appl to make the partitions so no virus can see or access it?

    I could use the new drive and clone the 7 Premium to it. The Premium HD is 3 yrs old. But I want to load a fresh 7 for some work related appls...
    The more I read on Backup appls the better NAS sounds but, you know, money's tight right now.
