I'm sure there must be a simple explanation for this, but I've searched the forum & can't find it. I'm attempting to do a full system backup & create a system recovery disk using Windows XP Pro. I use the Backup Wizard, select the option: "Backup all information on this computer", which should also allow me to create a system disk. I then select my DVDROM drive (D) to back everything upto & I get the following message:- "The Backup file name could not be used D:\Backup New Sys.bkf Please ensure it is a valid path and that you have sufficient access" The Windows XP help is pretty confusing, it seems to be going on about Media Pools, but I haven't a clue what they are! Can anyone help me, I thought backups were meant to be simple ! Thanks in advance.
