Since I can simply copy over my files, why would I need to use XP's BACKUP which puts the files in Microsoft's proprietary and outdated backup system? And not to mention how badly it fails if a folder name changes and other ills.
Why can't we copy them out?
I have xp home installed and is badly in need of recovery
I have tried restore without improvement. I have many critical files installed such as banking info etc. My question is,can I use the xp backup utility to back everything up and after reinstalling windows restore them or do I need a third party backup utility?
