Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Backup

Or you could just manually copy files like music and documents to a backup location.

It's not available in XP Home Edition.

If you have the cash, purchase Nero 7. It has a backup utility.

I asked you guys because there are tons and tons and tons of back up data progs.

Some of them i'm sure you need to be wary of. And some just suck.

And some are actually decent.

It's easy to find them on google. But which ones to pick?? that's the question.

And since I don't have hours to do research, and you guys have backed up data tons of times before, I put two and two together.

You know?
