Windows XP includes its own backup program, although you may need to do some digging to find it.
If you use Windows XP Home Edition, you'll need to follow these steps to install the utility:

1.

Insert your Windows XP CD into the drive and, if necessary, double-click the CD icon in My Computer.

2.

On the Welcome to Microsoft Windows XP screen, click Perform Additional Tasks.

3.

Click Browse this CD.

4.

In Windows Explorer, double-click the ValueAdd folder, then Msft, and then Ntbackup.

5.

Double-click Ntbackup.msi to install the Backup utility.

Thanks PIP 22. I feel foolish that I couldn't remember such a simple task. I'm on some strong pain medication, so my mind isn't as sharp as it should be. Got it dialed in, so again, I say "thank you, PIP 22". :thumbsup:

There's a useful article with a number of options of how to get NTbackup onto XP Home. KB Article how to get NTbackup onto Windows XP Home
These guys also do a really useful piece of software called Enhanced Windows Backup which can be used free to add the extra stuff that you need to get a really great backup solution.
Also check out my website about Backup in general www.ntbackup.us
