  Tech tip # 66 – Sort of a retraction of #65 or “The Tech Tip that would not die”

Had we waited until our final conversation with Microsoft Support regarding the lack of an adequate back up program in XP Home, we would have known that, if you explore the XP Home Installation disk, specifically explore (“Open” may cause things to run you do not want to run, so right click and explore) the  VALUEADD folder, then the MSFT folder, then the NTBACKUP folder, then INSTALL the NTBACKUP program you will then have an adequate back up program.  This, unfortunately, assumes you have the install disk.  If you got a restore disk from your manufacturer, or, as with Dell, nothing, you may not have this option and all we said in the last tip still stands.
