    I feel stupid, but I can't find the Windows XP backup utility that I've heard so much about. I go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools and there is no "Backup" there. Am I in the wrong place? How else can I access it, or is "System Restore" the same thing? With System Restore I can't backup just certain files, though.

    Thanks :)

    The backup utility is on both the Home and Professional.

    There is only one difference. Xp Professional installs the backup utility at setup. But Xp Home does not.

    You can install it from the Windows XP Cd. It’s in the “\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP” folder on the setup CD; click on NTBACKUP.MSI
