When backing up my hard drive, I want to include the file where Windows ME stores the desktop layout -- the icons and their positions on the screen, the background color, wallpaper, etc. I thought this was the win.ini file, but I'm not sure that's the one, or if this info is even stored in just one file. I want to be able to restore my desktop layout if my hard drive fails, so I won't have to create shortcuts and move them to the desktop. Any ideas? Thanks!

Thanks, Ratchet. I was able to locate this file using regedit, but I'm not sure how to back it up -- I couldn't locate it in the directory that comes up in Windows Explorer when I'm using click-and-drag. Is there a procedure for backing it up? Thanks!
