"My journey from XP to Ubuntu has stalled as I fight with Gutsy
Gibbon to recreate my file backup regime under Linux.
"I'm very anal when it comes to data backups. Under XP, I use
Handy Backup to automate a series of backup tasks. As a wordsmith I
work with text files, using NoteTab Pro, which keeps file sizes
