    I am trying to back up files on WinXP. I can do it OK on 98 but here I go
    to system tools and no back up. Help would be appreciated thanks.

    I am assuming that you have XP home rather than Pro

    If this is the case, get your XP CD out
    Insert the CD Rom, find the following folder and open it

    X:\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP
    where X is your cd rom drive letter

    Double-click the Ntbackup.msi file to start the wizard that installs Backup

    When the wizard is complete, click Finish

    If you are using Pro

    Open Backup. (Click Start| All Programs| Accessories | System Tools | Backup.)

    The Backup or Restore Wizard starts by default, unless it is disabled. If the Backup or Restore Wizard does not start by default, you can still use it to back up files by clicking the Tools | Backup Wizard.

    Click the Advanced Mode button in the Backup or Restore Wizard.

    Click the Backup tab, and then, on the Job menu, click New.

    Specify the files and folders you want to back up by selecting the check box to the left of a file or folder in Click to select the check box for any drive, folder, or file that you want to back up.
