ntbackup

By Sussertown ·
I just loaded XP. A "gropy" told me I could use ntbackup from XP. Can't find it. I'll bet it's in the pro addition. Can I find it somewhere? I used to use msbackup and autobackup to run auto backups with no user intervention.

XP Backup

by petemcc In reply to ntbackup

I found two articles that say XP home edition does not include a backup utility. Curiously a MS article about backup in XP states that the information applies to both Home and Pro versions:

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q309/3/40.asp?id=Q309340&sd=GN&fr=0&ln=EN-US

I have the pro version and Backup is there where you would expect, so if you type ntbackup at the run line and it doesn't open for you and it isn't in system tools, well I guess that's that...

Manualy install NTBACKUP from CD

by jshakal In reply to ntbackup

You can manually install NTBACKUP from the XP Home CD-ROM by:

1. Double-click the Ntbackup.msi file in the following location on the Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM to start a wizard that installs Backup:
CD-ROM Drive:\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP
2. When the wizard is complete, click Finish.
