Backing up Windows files is not the critical issue in creating a backup scheme. The files that are needed are those pictures of your two year olds birthday party or copies of your 1997 tax returns. These are the items which are irreplaceable and should be saved off the machine on to floppy/CDR/external hard drive etc.
Windows can always be reinstalled from a cd.
I have a used e machine given to my kids by my sister with windows 98 on it but no disk paperwork or any of that inportant stuff your suposed to have with a computer.It had some viruses.My brother in law reformated it and reloaded windows 98.So I don't have to call him every time something happens.Can I make a window 98 backup files on floppy disk? If so how do I do it? And if I can't make a windows 98 copy.how do I make backup files for everything else I lost when he reformated.Any help would be appreciated.thanks tec/no/not
