Backing up XP

  The Bard 18:55 09 Aug 2003

I bought a Pioneer 106 DVD-RAM writer to use as a back up. Unfortunately, my first choice software Powerquest Drive Image 7 does not work with DVD-RAM and I have been told that Norton Ghost is not easy to use for a novice like me. Any suggestions?

But does Ghost work with DVD-RAM? Their website does not say. What about Acronis True Image?

If you are running XP home edition it has it's own backup program but it is hidden, I'm almost certain that you could backup to DVD.Here is the way to extract it from your XP CD, it is worth doing even if you need to backup elsewhere.
Put the XP CD in the drive, go to Run, Type valueadd\msft\ntbackup. double click ntbackup.msi.
It's as easy as that, you don't need to pay for backup progams. It comes as standard on XP Professional but it is hidden in XP Home edition.

Thanks for the info, but is Ghost compatible with DVD-RAM - their website does not say.

Their technical department says it doesn't!
