C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntbackup.exe
Start - Run - C:\WINDOWS\system32- OK
It's located in System 32 - ntbackup - mine has a red arrow in the Icon.
Their are 3 with this name but only one has the red arrow.
Right click this Icon and send a shortcut to your Desktop.
Use your pointer and hold the left click and drag the Backup Icon to -
Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Put it in the list.
Don't release the left click until your ready to drop the shortcut.
If you work it right it will go.
If you don't have the ntbackup in system32, I can't help you, maybe someone else can.

If we are talking about the "Backup" that is in "XP Pro," it is really not at all worth using. It does not backup everything that should be.

Well, it backs up what you tell it to backup.
From the above link:
"When used correctly and in conjunction with freely available enhancement software you can implement a backup strategy with NTBackup and avoid costly backup software from third parties. "
I use it. I like it. It works for me.

Note it needs "enhancements." Perhaps when you go thru with the extras, it rivals Acronis "TrueImage, but I will spend a few dollars for a proven, easy to use product.

And then there is a free "CobianBackup" for data files, too.
