    When I attempt to use the Backup wizard in XP PRO it offers me only 2 removable disks, A and H (ZIP), as destination choices. How can I direct the backup to my 2nd hard drive, G? A reference book makes this quote: "You can store a backup file on a fixed hard disk--set the box to Let Me Choose A Location Not Listed Here and click the Browse button to see your hard disks and choose a folder." I can't find this box to which they refer! Any suggestions?

    I just tried it. I selected the Advanced Mode option after selecting Backup and it allowed me to select any drive or partition I wanted. Did you use it?
