    I have been trying to assist a friend who is not very computer literate. My computer OS is Windows Vista which has a wizard to allow scheduled backup of the hard drive. I tried to do this for my friends computer, running Windows xp and could not find anyway to do an automatic backup schedule to an external hard drive.
    Is there a backup wizard within Windows xp, and if so can someone please tell me how to access it!!
    If there is no facility in windows xp for this what is the best backup software to simplify the task for a new computer user with very limited computer know how?
    Thank you for all who can assist in this matter!!
