Backup& Recovery Tools -

I am trying to use the Windows Backup & Recovery tools
(found in accessories under system tools) to simply backup
up important data files. When I specify D:/backup.bkf as
the backup destination, I get the error message "D: is not
a valid dirve or you do not have access". D: is my cd-rw
drive that works perfectly fine. I am able to read and
write to this drive from other window applications. Why
isn't the Backup & Recovery tool working with this drive?

Thanks for your help!

Hi KD,

KB262006 - Windows Backup Does Not Back Up to CD-R/CD-RW/DVD-R Devices
http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=262006

However, if you are using Packet Writing Software it is possible to backup up to your
recordable disk if you first share your CDRW. For more information on how "To share
a folder or drive with other people", search Windows 2000 Help for the words in
double-quotes.
