I loaded the backup utility from the Windows XP (HE) CD, but am having a problem after completing the ' Backup type, Destination and Name ' screen. I called the file 'william' say, but when I click 'OK' I get the following error message: 'The backup file name 'E:\william.bkf' could not be used. Please ensure it is a valid path and that you have sufficient access'. Any ideas, please (and a Merry Christmas to all my readers ! )
From Bloggs 52 Thank you all for your helpful replies. I was amazed to learn that you can't backup to a CD , as the latest edition of the magazine Microsoft Windows XP (issue 41), pages 26/27, suggests that you can. I suppose that I shall have to revert to backing up by dragging the files and folders to the E drive. It is slow, but it works !
