You have to add the system backup from the XP install cd,its in the "VALUEADD" folder.I wouldn't rely on it to work tho' as I used it to backup my OS(file created was 2+gbs)but when I tried to restore it,nothing changed.Using the backup from XP,you need to reinstall XP then browse to the backup and click on it,I had hoped that it would reinstall all the Updates(save d/l them again)but it didn't.I would use either Acronis TrueImage or DriveImage as I have used both these previously,and was impressed with the speed of recovery.
The Win Me computer only has the Operating System and Nero on it - the XP system is mine and all FILES are systematically backed-up - but not the O/S. I suppose I really should copy this drive to my SCSI removable drive for safe keeping. Recommendation for a reliable drive copy program would be appreciated - am willing to buy a good one.
Again thanks - my internet connection will run out on the 6th October, so I'm trying to update everything in time.
