Backup file in utilities missing?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers (More info?)

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.

    Hi Barbara,

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

    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,

    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).
