    Hi,

    I recently signed up for a VPS hosting and got this bad boy loaded with SeNuke and ScrapeBox. They are
    performing like a beast.... testing lots of ways to penetrate Google, let's see which works best :eek:.

    Anyways... the main thing I am concerned is the server going retarded or my hosting provider doing
    something stupid like... going out of business or something. They do not have a backup in place
    and chances are if I ask them... they might charge me extra. So, avoiding all that I want to take
    a snapshot of the server or at least the core files and make daily backups.

    Is there a simple utility in windows to take a snapshot of my OS and store it in a single zip file? And from my
    end I can probably write a shell script to SSH in and just download that file.

    Am I asking for too much? Or there is already something in place?

    -Wicked!

    If you still have access to your VPS, why don't you start backing it up and downloading your important files. Then Rent a vps with the same specs from a reputable provider.

    Ditch the old provider and use the new one.
