Backing Up and Restoring Critical Files

I always tell my friends that they need to back up the critical files on their PC on a regular basis. They don't always listen to me (to be honest, they seldom—if ever—listen to me!), but it's still good advice. Even if it's advice I don't always follow myself.

In previous editions of this book I talked about using the Microsoft Backup utility to perform your backup needs. There are two problems with Microsoft Backup, however. First, it's not installed by default in Windows XP Home Edition. (It is installed by default in XP Professional.) Second, it really isn't that good for backing up today's extra-large hard drives. (It's a rather old and now outdated utility, to be honest.)
