Default robocopy?

is robocopy for use only with operating systems with NT?

can i use it for windows xp and windows 98? like through a network?

and have any of you guys had any experience? good bad?

I need to find a good backup program, and a peer referred me to this program, but i have no idea what it is... so any of your advice or opinions would be appreciated.

I'm reserecting this topic because when I searched for Robocopy it was all I found.

I'm feeling dumb. It was suggested I use robocopy, I have done some minor googling and gotten pretty much no where. I would like to use robocopy on my Windows Xp laptop to copy media files automatically to my backup drive. I am told it is ideal for this. I have no idea how to call the program. I tried the run menu and I tried the command window and always got that it is not a recognized program.

I'm sorry to hit you all with such a basic question but any references wil be helpful. Thank you.

I found a website that gives you commands but I am unsure how to use them.
