    You'll need to do more than just copy files to do a complete restore. There are a number of programs out there like Ghost that will allow you to make an image of your drives. The entire drive can then be restored if needed.... but you will still need to do interim backups of documents, etc. For that you can just copy the files or, again, get software that does incremental backups. There are plenty out there.

    The best method I have found is to use an imaging or clone program. Here's one that works better than most:

    Complete hard disk recovery solution, backup, drive copy, clone and image computer software
