|Anyone recommend me a free backup software under Windows?|

I need the backup software to backup the data to another harddisk or another computer.
BTW, any comment on backup tools integrated in windows xp or 2003?

You could also write a batch file using commands like Xcopy [microsoft.com] and have Windows Scheduler run it for you on a regular basis.

I really like my setup with rsync, look for CWRSYNC.CMD

rsync only work under unix/linux.....
backup tool integreated in windows is Ok(good enough)?
And I think that compose a bat file with xcopy command is a little complicated for me.

You've been misinformed. Rsync works wonders under windows as well. Super fast too. You can backup remotely, or just to another folder or both at the same time. It's awesome!

Windows native backup creates one huge file and it makes it really difficult to extract files without the tool itself.

I used to use xcopy, but then I realised something. If I delete the file from the source, it stays in the destination. So after a while you'll have a ton of stale data.
