    Genie-Soft Backup Manager was included in the The 46 Best-ever Freeware Utilities list.
    The review looks as if it would be a good tool for backup by those of us who are not especially competent in the computer field.

    Here is the review.

    Anyone familiar with this?

    Thanks,

    Hi iceni :)
    Yes that to makes a very good back up. The Backup utility is not included in the default installation of Windows XP Home Edition. So you will need to get your windows CD out providing you know where you have put it :D Then Double-click the Ntbackup.msi file in the following location on the Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM to start the wizard that installs Backup:
    CD-ROM Drive:\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP
    That is all there is to it When the wizard is complete, click Finish.
