You know how you are supposed to go to start, all programs then accessories
and point to system tools and click backup, well the word backup is not
there. It was there yesterday Aug 22, I saw it , I did nothing in my computer
deleting or moving anything. I come home from work and was going to try to
backup a file or something , because I never used that yet. Well the word
backup is missing. Anyone know what I should do? Thanks for you help, Barbara

Hi Barbara,

Click start/run, type ntbackup.exe and click ok. This should start the
utility if it is installed.

dell.com and one file c:D ell file foler 1. Still don't have the word

Hi Barbara,

WinXP Home by chance? It is not installed by default and must be added to
these systems.

HOW TO: Install Backup from the CD-ROM in Windows XP Home Edition

Yes I have Microsoft window xp home edition version 2002 service pack 2 , its
a pentium (r) p4 2.80ghz 2.70 ghz, 512 mb of ram. And by the way, your quote
fits me to a tee, lol. You guys are great by the way, you have been a light
in my darkness.
Maybe I should download install backup from cd-rom windows xp home edition,
what could it hurt? Yes?

Backup is not installed by default with Windows XP Home. It has to be
installed by YOU - on purpose. Unfortunately, I do not have a copy of Home
available to get the path to the install, so I can't point you to it. I am
sure others will step in here and lead you to it.

Glad to oblige.
If you have the complete XP Home CD, find backup on the CD, in
\ValueAdd\MSFT\NTBACKUP and install it yourself by doubleclicking the file
ntbackup.msi.



If you don't have an XP CD, you can download ntbackup.msi at

I have the operating system reinstallation cd microsoft windows xp home
edition including service pack 2. It said software is already installed on
your computer only use this cd to reinstall the operating system on a dell
computer . This cd is not for reinstallation of programs or drivers. So are
you saying if I use this cd, a screen will come up showing items to pick to
download, and to find MSFT/NTBACKUP? Don't want to put cd in and I mess up
with another reinstallation of everything and I have problems. Please advise,
Thanks, Barbara

As written above, go here http://www.onecomputerguy.com/software/ntbackup.msi
and download the file. Install it if you want, then go here http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q309340#appliesto to read about how to use it in XP home. You do have a 2nd hard disk drive installed of course (to save the .bkf to because it will not save the file to CD or DVD).
