Hi to all. I'm trying to create a recovery disk and have never attempted it before. The first thing I'm instructed to do is to go to system tools and click on "Backup". There isn't a listing for it in tools.???? What's my options now?

Thanks,

Darol

I appreciate the response, but when I open your link, it shows a tab that says, Windows XP Backup Made Easy, but the page is blank.???

If you are running XP home edition, Windows Backup is not installed by default, you have to install it yourself, see here:

dc3, for some reason both of those links you gave also show as plank pages for me too using IE8, but they open fine with Firefox.
Quite the irony in that.

I haven't used IE in years, so it didn't even occur to me that this could be the problem.
