xp backup

I have recently upgraded to XP and I can't find a tab for backing up my hard drive...or any back up for that matter...

I used to be able to find it related to the C drive...now I can't

any help would be appreciated.

Why do they lay in your path and refuse to move out of your way and then complain bitterly when you trip over them?

Hi, have you tried going to XP's help menu and performing a search of "hard drive backup". If not search for it at www.microsoft.com.

I just thought of something else, try search in at www.techtv.com especially in the shows "The Screen Savers" or "Call for Help".

I hope that helps a bit.

Maybe this other site will shed some more info Windows XP Resource Center

This may be covered in the links already given, but I think I recall that in XP Home, the backup program isn't automatically installed. But it's on the CD. So take a look in the Windows XP CD to see if it's there to install. There's a procedure for installing additions to XP - probably Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

Sorry this isn't complete instructions but it's a lead.

Hi Ingrid ~
Try this:
Go to "Start".
Then "Help and Support" (Blue question mark).
Then "Performance and Maintenance".
Then "Backing up your data".
Quote:

"Using Backup
The Backup utility helps you create a copy of the information on your hard disk. In the event that the original data on your hard disk is accidentally erased or overwritten, or becomes inaccessible because of a hard disk malfunction, you can use the copy to restore your lost or damaged data."
"Notes:
To start Backup, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Backup.
The Removable Storage service must be started for Backup to work properly. For more information, click Related Topics.
You can also use the Automated System Recovery Wizard in the Backup utility to help you repair your system.
For information about using Backup, click the Help menu in Backup.

Hope this helps! ~ Kathy
