    Use favorites - and synchronize thru a website or shared folder?
    Use a folder - and again share or synchronize it?
    How to Manage Passwords?
    Backup - What's the best solutionDrive Imaging - The following three seem to be the most popular solutions
    PowerQuest - Drive Image software

Hi!

To manage passwords I use Password Safe(6+ years). Originally written by Bruce Schneier; also using his Blowfish cipher for database protection. About 3 years ago Schneier released the code. It is now being actively developed at SourceForge
http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net
It is small and easily transported on a floppy disc(if any exist on these new machines) ~375Kb / 100Kb UPX'd.

When a password looks like this:
L+Hs?YMT8GTe$G#$o>8?vW~B-J
who wants to remember it anyway ;~)

There are also UNIX programs which can read the encrypted database files.

For BACKUP I have come across references to two programs that are recommended:

Backup4All
is positively reviewed by Mike Gunderloy at larkware.com

SyncBack sounds quite good.

And I use Acronis True Image for backing up my data too. It's better than norton ghost for images, in my opinion. It's quicker, the compression ratios seem better (smaller backups), the feature set is richer and the interface is more intuitive for most users.
I really LOVE it.
