My name is Edmond Bolton.I am fairly literate in Computer use,but a long way from where I would like to be.
I want to backup my System Files,but when I go to System Tools,It tells me to insert Floppy.How can I do it on
a CD? I am running W2000Pro.
Any help appreciated.

I just tried this and was able to save the backup to my hdd, if you have Nero or similar software you can copy that file from the hdd and burn a copy to a CD or DVD.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

What files are you trying to back up, exactly?

If I remember correctly in Win2k, ntbackup.exe was the program you used to create a repair floppy that could be used with the bootable setup CD to recover a failing system. I assume that's the program you're using here? I'm not sure what system files would be worth backing up other than what would be saved to that repair floppy, since the Windows system itself can be repaired by doing an "in place upgrade", again, using the repair floppy and the setup CD.
