I couldn't find a thread about this specifically. I have Windows 98 and use NTI Backup Now! for backups. I've tried several times over the years to get the Windows Backup program to detect my CD-RW drive for backup storage to no avail.
I just had an ASPI file corruption problem that prevented my Backup Now! from detecting my CD-RW until I restored a good file so I once again looked at the Windows backup program.
I'm just about convinced the Windows 98 Backup program will not save (write) to a CD-RW device. Can anyone tell me if this is true? It would prevent me wasting anymore time worrying about the program does not detect a backup drive available.
Thanks,
Bud

If your refering to the backup program that comes with Win 98 then you are correct. It will now work with a CD/RW drive.

Thanks John. I needed confirmation of that fact. Sometimes I find myself plagued by self doubt, especially when it involves this infernal machine.

Since you are so helpful can you tell me just what the term ASPI, in winaspi.dll, means?

Thanks
