    Ok, I posted earlier with an error message I keep getting. Well after a LONG evening of tech support I have a link to that is supposed to fix it. Before I do this though I need to back up my files, it has never been done. We have 5000+ songs on iTunes, pictures, files, all kinds of junk I can't dare lose. SO, I thought it would be easy to follow the "Back up Wizard" but for some reason it won't recognize my DVD burner. It says to go to the removable storage service under system services of management console. How do I get there??? Anyone????

    Welcome to TSG....

    STOP! Do not use the windows backup wizaerd!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go to http://www.acronis.com

    Get this and an external hard drive which is best and make an image of all of the important data you have. This is one that will work and restore all of the data.

    Remember you get what you pay for.

    iTunes music is a special case, since that's all DRM protected. I don't know the details, but there are procedures you need to follow to backup and restore any licenses you have for that music.
