Microsoft Backup

I notice that my Evesham computer includes the backup option in Tools tab for drive C.

In all my searches for a third party backup program, I never thought of the one that comes with XP. I believe it does not support some media but, presumably it will support an external HD and, possibly, CDRW/DVDRW.

Any advice, please?

It will support external HDD, tape drive, zip drive but, amazingly, not CDRW/DVDRW.

Which is why I've never bothered using it.

Did your son manage to download EZ Backitup for you? It's nicer to use than NTBackup.

You can still backup to another drive and then burn that back up to DVD/CD. If you lose/corrupt the backup on your external? HDD you can restore from your DVD/CD.
