    I can't find the Backup Wizard in my System Tools. I understand that I can install it off the XP CD, but that wasn't provided with my computer. I created a Windows Boot CD when I first started the computer. Can I install the Backup Utility off that? If not, how can I find or download it?:

    NTBackup does not install by default on XP Home. It can be installed manually from the XP Home CD and is located in %cd_drive%\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP\NTBACKUP.MSI

    I don't recall ever seeing it on an XP Pro disc. Microsoft does provide a recovery-only version compatible with Vista free for the download. It can be found at the following link:

    Please go to Thread Tools and choose "Solved." That will indicate to folks that you no longer need assistance. The courtesy will be appreciated.
