BackUp


J

I used the Backup Wizard. After selecting the advanced
mode, I then clicked on the backup tab. I selected the
contents on the C drive for the backup. Under Backup
media or filename, I entered E: since that is my CD
writable drive (I had already inserted a blank CD-RW disk
on that drive). I then clicked start backup. The system
showed this error statement, "The backup filename could
not be used. Please ensure it is a valid path." What is
causing this problem? Per my friend's suggestion, I tried
to enter E:\backup.bkf but I found the same error
statement.

NTBackup (i.e. the Backup Wizard) doesnt support backing up to CD's.

This will only work if you have third party software that supports spanning
to CD's (unless it's a small file). The built in CD Bruning Wizard will not
do it.

I suggest going to www.handybackup.com for a third party program that costs
only $30. I have used it and it worked fine, backing up my entire system on
four CD-RWs that were formatted. The formatting is important even though
"Handy" says it is not. At least that was my experience. Lanier clued me
into the need for a third party program a coupe weeks ago. He is correct.

Here is a URL for a Microsoft 'article' that gives a full "from the horses
mouth" explanation for the "problem." CGS
