That app was supplied for use by those that needed to keep using the NTBACKUP apps from Windows NT and Windows 2000. This backup app is outdated and dangerous.
Please use ANYTHING ELSE.
My subscription to windows live one care recently expired. I used it, among other things, to back up my files to an Iomega prestige 500 gb ext hard drive. Everything went ok, but now that one care has ended, I have to use the xp backup utility. It does not show my ext hd (drive I) as an option to back up to. The Iomega on I drive does show in my computer. I am running xp, sp3. Ext drive is formatted in ntfs. Microsoft site continually refers to the back up utility, which would be ok if it would recognize my esxt hd. Thanks to anyone for help.
