You can also download it for XP home
http://www.microsoft.com/protect/yourself/data/backup.
It simplifies the copying documents and pictures somewhat, but doesn't have all of the bells and whistles like other 3rd party software

There are a couple of free ones recommended HERE in our freeware applications list. One is Cobians Backup They give you some extra options of when and what to backup and you can have them do it at certain times. Then you get to the big boys, Acronis Tru Image and Norton Ghost. With these 2 you can image your entire hard drive. Plus they have other tools for repartitioning the drive and so forth

I have Norton Gost on a c/d, and with further digging around I got backup on Nero.
