    I am about to reformat the HD on my laptop...is there a way to save my network settings so that once it's reformatted I can just copy those settings back into XP? I have a wireless network, and I don't care to go through the whole process again of setting up my network and file sharing...:)
    Thank you!!

    The "Files and settings transfer wizard" -It can usually be found here: Start>All programs>Accessories>System tools

    Good Luck;)

    So I choose to save my settings to a removable drive, and once I am back up and running just transfer the settings back? And my network and file sharing settings will be restored?? That's awesome, thanks!!

    I seriously doubt the Files & Settings Transfer Wizard will transfer folder share information. Maybe the computer and workgroup name, but I doubt much beyond that.

    Selecting the folders to share is simple. It's all the network setting I don't wanna mess with...
    Thank you again!
