Hi - upgraded a few weeks ago from 98SE to XP Home on a well-equipped
pentium III. I'm still entirely on FAT-32. All runs well. However,
this evening I was coping some big files (i depend on disk-to-disk
backups), from a WIN98SE machine on my local 100Mb network TO my XP
machine, and i noticed the copy was going real slow. Anti-virus was
off, so I brought up the task manager, and, for some reason NTBACKUP was
running at about 99% utilization of my CPU. I killed the process and
the copy got much faster.

I can't understand why NTBACKUP was running and what it was doing, does
anyone know?

/j

Also - since I'm all FAT-32, should i disable VSS (volume shadow
service)? I get errors in the event log whenever I run NTbackup ( I do
a daily system state backup and move the file to another PC).

T H A N K S!!

Did you have Backup scheduled prior to the upgrade?
