    I currently have Windows XP Home Edition. I understand that for some reason, the home edition does not have the hard drive back up feature. Would it be simpler to upgradt to xp professional or purchase an external hard drive to back up my internal hard drive? How difficult is it to upgrade from home edition to professional?

    thanks

    Does XP Media Edition have the back up feature or is it only on XP Pro?

    I renew the suggestion that Squashman made, Cobian backup is a far superior solution for backup, and it's free. Why in the world would you want to use the anemic Windows version?
