Part VIII: Appendixes > Backing Up Files with Microsoft Backup

Backing Up Files with Microsoft Backup

If the Microsoft Backup program bundled with Windows Me looks familiar, that should come as no surprise. This program, a "light" version of Backup Exec Desktop from Veritas Software, is absolutely identical to the version included with Windows 98 Second Edition. It includes most of the features you need to effectively back up your system, including limited Emergency Restore capabilities. But it's missing several useful features as well, most notably the capability to schedule unattended backups.

Tip

The full Backup Exec Desktop program, available from Veritas Software, offers several features missing from the free Microsoft Backup program. If you want to schedule unattended backups, you must purchase this upgrade or another backup program.
