ASR Disk backs up entire system

By multiplexed ·
I'm trying to build an ASR Disk. I have a 2003 lab computer that windows explorer says is 5.44 GB of files. When I run the ASR wizard, it backs up 4.88 GB of almost every single file on the entire system. I had the same problems with ERD disks on windows 2000.

What I'm doing is below...

-Method 1-
Open MSBackup
Select Backup Tab
Select Job, then New - (Zero files are selected now)
Select Backup file destination
Select Tools, Then ASR Wizard
Next/Next/ - Finish the ASR wizard

It then calculates & attempts to back up 4.88 GB of data.

-Method 2-
Open MSBackup
Select Backup Tab
Select Job, then New, then select 1 single file (boot.ini) -
Save Selection (1 file, boot.ini is selected)
Select Backup file destination
Select Tools, Then ASR Wizard
It prompts "would you like to clear the current selection"

If I say no, ASR wizard closes
If I say yes,
Next/Next/ - Finish the ASR wizard

It then calculates & attempts to back up 4.88 GB of data.

-Method 3-
Open MS Backup
Select "Welcome" tab
Click the ASR Wizard Button
Next/Next/ - Finish the ASR wizard
It then calculates & attempts to back up 4.88 GB of data.

There are certain files that are skipped by default. Pagefile.sys is one of them.

Assuming this is the case, I?d guess your RAM is between 256 and 384MB.

My ASR backup is backing up the above, plus 4.88 GB of files. How do I get my ASR to only back up the above, with no extra files being backed up.
