XP backup function

  kingkenny 22:15 04 Feb 2003

Hello all,

I have windows XP OEM purchased from Dabs. I have been investigating how to backup my system and each time I am led to System tools in the start up menu where I am asked to click on the Backup program.

The thing is I don't have this function.

Can anyone help answer why this is?
Also can anyone suggest ways which I can backup all my data on my hdd?
I have nero and noticed it has a backup create function. is this any good?

Thank you to anyone who answers

............ I should have said ......... It won't back up to a CD - amazing but true. You will have to backup to hard disk then burn the backup to CD.

Personally I only backup "My Documents" and then to Zip drive, although I've tried the indirect route to CD as an experiment.
