hi, how do you make a backup copy of windows and everything on your computer (C:\ dirve)?

ok, the back up utility is not installed on xp home edition, you have to manually do it. Which you'll need your windows xp cd.

Double-click the Ntbackup.msi file in the following location on the Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM to start a wizard that installs Backup:
CD-ROM Drive:\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP

When the wizard is complete, click Finish.

after the backup utility is installed, you start it by going to:

start|all programs|accessories|system tools|backup

use the backup wizard to save everything for you.

ps. creating a restore point is also a good idea, if your worried about loosing data.

tried that- trouble is it wont back up to your cd writer so u have to use A drive or a usb which havent got the capacity unless u have a large external drive -assume u can get some expensive software which will work but cost lots of money! if i'm wrong please let me know
