    Howdy out there in computer world:
    I need some help today, and would sure appreciate if someone could tell me how to remove enough files from my backup folder, so that I have enough room on a 700 MB CD to make a backup CD. I keep clicking on my backup folder, but it will not let me see the files. Thank you very much.

    If I understand right, you are trying to see what's in your Backup Folder and nothing is listed?? Is this WinXP?? Where is this Backup Folder located? Is this 3rd party software that's backing up files?

    I am trying to figure out how to remove backup files in Windows XP so that I have enough room to install them on a 700 MB CD. I have the files backed up in a seperate folder, but I can't see what's in the folder. I used the Windows XP backup wizard to back up my system. Thank you much.

    I have never used XP's Backup. I assume though MS puts the backup files in .cab form which may or maynot be why you can't "see" them. My post will bump up your problem and maybe someone else here may enlighten us both. :D
