    Hi, on win98se i've got no "backup files", i don't have the cd to install but i do have the key.
    Anyway, what i want to do is remove a bunch of folders from OE6 to floppys.
    Is there any way to do this w/o backup, or if not, is there any way to get backup w/o tha 98se cd?
    thanx 4 any help

    I would suggest backing up to CD instead of to floppy. With a floppy you are limited to 1.44meg, with a CD 640 to 700meg.

    By far, the best back up and restore utility is Norton's GHOST!

    Here is one of the best tutorials on Ghost that I have seen. It even has the command line for creating images in 640 meg 'slices' to be stored on the HD and later burned to CD

    http://ghost.radified.com/

    I would suggest Highlighting the material and pasting it into Word so you can print it out for reference. I think in word it comes out to around 25 pages.

    I told you it was good!! Very detailed, but not extremely techie.

    AcaCandy, i moved the files to outlook ok, though it said it couldn't read my email profile and said i should delete it and make another (something else i don't know how to do) anyway i can't get my mail from outlook to a floppy either?
    NiteHawk, thanx for the info, but i don't have a cd burner, i'm checkin' out the Ghost thing.
