    Backup (XP SR1)

    I just upgraded to XP from 98 and noticed that XP no longer has the backup program (I think it was MSBKUP) that came with 98. Does XP have such a utility? If not, are there any recommended programs out there for performing this vital function?

    XP home does not install the backup utility by default, see replies to <post#=187274>post 187274</post#> for instructions.

    In addition to the thread that Stuart pointed you to (which mentions a FREEBIE for selected file backup), just search THIS forum and you'll find lots of pro and con about what to use for FULL system backup.

    Just as Stuart recommended I found instructions on loading the backup program from my XP CD. It was quite simple and it operates very similar to the W98 version.

    Thanks,
