I haven't personally used this but this article goes through it step by step with a useful video.

Thanks, but I think there is a problem, I can't get the video to play

difarn, Thanks, I've found that tutorial, but having tried using the XP Backup system it does not work as shown in it. If you want to do a "Full Backup" "All information on this Computer" using the Wizard you get a message to say file can't be made. I have found that if you go into the Advanced mode you can create a "Full Backup" That is what I wanted to discuss/seek advise about

Ok - you want to do a complete system back up and possibly create a system recovery disk. I haven't done this in XP but have with Windows 7 using an external hard drive for storage. This article about the advanced mode back up may be of use to you.

Thanks, have found out that you have to use Advanced mode to do full backup as XP Home does not support this software

If unsure about the Windows back-up, I've used Paragon with good results free from here

If yo want to keep it safe Get Acronis True Image or some other similar software

The XP backup sysstem does not do a full backup as in 'Restore from a disk' but only backs your data files (files you have created.)

I suggest a program like Paragon Free

or EASEUS disk copy

There are plenty of other backup programs , just do a search for Backup free.
