Back up took 3 hrs or more to back up all of
the computer. Is there a quicker way. It is a
laptop-gateway computer using XP.

i think that if you take backup the entire computer the better way is to use a external application like Acronis or symantec ,and you can take the image of disks and choose the performance and the commpression .

It only took 3 hours? Consider yourself lucky! I can remember when it took all night and the drives were MUCH smaller back then.
