I installed a new 2nd HD on my Computer with Home XP. Is there a program in XP that will do easy scheduled backups to this new HD? I would like to use this second HD for auto backups. Will this 2nd HD be seen by another XP machine if My computer crashes?

Try the XP Help and/or look under Start, programs, Accessories, System Tools, Back-Up.

Nope it is not there in XP Home. But I did read it is on the XP Home CD So I will try that. Thanks anyway

You are correct. Backup is not included in XP home.

Ahead Nero 6 includes a good backup program. As a bonus you also get a great CD and DVD burning suite. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

You can also use Drive Image 7. It will back up and restore a complete partition from one drive to another. It is great for restoring lost system partitions. Make sure you get version 7 for Windows XP.

Found the XP backup program on my Home XP CD here is the path. \value add\msft\nt backup select all files to browse and run Ntbackup.msi will install on to your system. Seems to work ok. Wrote 6Gb for backup
