Backing up........

  nick_j007 23:08 02 Feb 2003

Hello all.
Is there a Back up wizard type facility in WXP home? If so, I can't find it.

Also I see there is a whole list of downloads/utilities on this site....but which should I choose?? Any body out there with experience on any of these.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Chaaas VoG!

Is this my best bet then for all my backing up worries?

what are you looking to back up?

XP has a system restore facility as well remember

Should be adequate for most users. It will not backup to CD. If you need to do this then you need to backup to hard drive, then copy the backup to CD.

Well, recently I was getting a little paranoid that I might loose all my digital pic's that I have taken using up about 1.4 gigs.
I did find a programme that was recommended called MusicMatch (an audio player) on the basis that it will span a folder when copying over a few CD ROM's, so I used this one and it worked fine.
I'm reasonably familiar with the restore facility as I used it only at the end of last week, as my PC was very's going sweet again now thankfully.
But, I would still like to find a bare-bones back up facility that will span discs and know where I left off since my last copying over of files. Will the WXP facility do this ok? Apart from my pictures, perhaps other files such as My Documents could be addressed too. I should point out that I do want to copy it all onto CD-Roms.

Thankyou for your thought and efforts so far, Nick Jones.
