    Hello GlobalForce, I am trying to backup to a external hard drive. If I create a CD will that let me find my Documents and Settings folder? I've looked every where and I cannot locate the folder?

    sometime the "documents and settings" folder is hidden. You need to go to the control panel/folder options/view/and check the box that says show hidden files and folders.

    This will get your folder to show up.

    Guys I don't have a clue where my Documents and Settings are at. I opened view hidden files, look at the video on bleeping computer, I opened every folder that I thought it might be in but no go. I no its on this computer because when I run a Dr. Web Cure-it scan I can see that it is scanning the folder. Man I don't where it is.

    See:
    4sysops.com/archives/documents-and-settings-in-vista/

    They give an overview, and basically repeat what the other posters have been saying.
    But they add a little context.
