Currently I use Sonic application to backup my files. However the Sonic version that came installed on my HP desktop PC doesn't appear to have the capability to do "incremental" backups. These are backups of only the changes to files since the previous backup.
Also on my HP desktop PC is "ntbackup.exe", a Microsoft backup application. When I try to "open" this application nothing happens. I'm wondering if it's because I have the Media Center Edition 2005 which is listed as XP Professional.
Does anyone have any ideas for me on how to do incremental backups-without spending money on another backup service or application?

I have never used NTBackup, but it appears to offer the ability to do incremental backups.

You can always download/install NTBackup, http://www.onecomputerguy.com/software_download.htm

I have the same OS on my computer, which came with bundled software. And while I do have backup disks to restore the whole system if I needed to, I am not able to just correct a couple individual things.

For instance, I no longer have a volume control in my lower task bar, and the SD card reader slot no longer works. I would like to restore those two things, but when I tried to follow instructions to restore the volume control, it says it was not installed. I know it used to be there, but apparently an improper restore did away with it.

So with that link that you gave, will running that help those two problems of mine?

To Bettei: Please start your own thread, be courteous to the original poster. Your details will not coincide/match the details of the situation he/she posted.
