    I have two hard drives on my desktop computer. One hard drive is 80GB, and the other one is 40GB. I would like to back up the contents on my 80GB drive (everything should fit in that I have plenty of room left) onto my 40GB drive. My question is: is there a command or a program in Windows that would allow me to do this? I looked for "backup" in Search and in Windows Help but found nothing. If there is nothing in Windows, is there a free/shareware program that will allow me to back up the contents of one drive onto another drive? Thanks in advance.

    I should have said that I have Windows XP, Home Edition on my computer.

    MFDnSC, I was able to install the backup program from my Windows XP CD, but when I tried to back up "C" to "D" I got the message, "The files for the recovery diskette could not be created. The operation was aborted." I have my "D" drive formatted, and I don't know what could be causing the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
