How do I back up critical files

Hi,

I was just told that I may need to install  the update for Internet Ecplorer 
6 for XP Service Pack 2 in order to stop my IE from crashing.

I started the update, but was told to back up critical files before 
proceeding. Which critical files should I back up and what method is best?

Any help would be appreciated.

Toody,
Have a look here for Windows:
http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/update/backup.mspx
In Outlook you can download this utility for your .pst file:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/HA010875321033.aspx
Critical files are those that you want to keep and restore if there is a 
problem or error when you update your MS software.

Chris,

Thanks for the links. They're very easy to understand - and very helpful!

I do have one question. If I back up my files to Drive D, as is suggested, 
do I need a CD? Also, can you use a CD like a floppy (over and over again), 
or can you only place the items on it one time, and then never add anything 
to it again without erasing the original contents?

CDR = write once
CDRW= write/rewrite
(Similarly with DVD)
Whether you can add files to a cd depends on the burning software used, and
obviously only with a CDRW
The crucile thing is to test whether your CD's are able to restore data in a
readable state.
Personally I prefere to backup to a second hd and or external hd, eg usb
memory stick.

Hi All

I just Installed this backup tool.

To run a test, I backed up my Outlook Personal folders.  I then deleted a 
folder under my Inbox.  Went to File > Open > Outlook Data file... I opened 
"Outlook backup.pst".  The folder I deleted has not been restored.

Is this the way it works or am I missing something ?

Thanks

No.  Backup only to your D drive is sufficient.  Likely installing the two 
updates you are planning will not damage your files.  If anything happens 
bad, having a copy on another partition is sufficient.

If you were doing a system backup/image then doing so to an external drive 
{USB or Firewire}, to DVD or to CD would be preferred to prevent any damage 
to your computer also damaging your backup/image.  An external drive is 
faster than DVD or CD.  DVD would require fewer disks than CD.  For 
backup/image to DVD or CD you need to read the programs directions to 
determine rewrite disks are recommended.

You should consider establishing a suitable routine for backup/image of your 
system.

When I get a list of updates, Microsoft says I need a critical update for Office 2003. I think there was a trial version of Office 2003 on my computer, but I never used it since I had an earlier version. I have purchased, installed, and registered Office 2007. Do I still need that Office 2003 update, and assuming no, how do I get rid of the message and attempt to install it by Microsoft Update?

I have a commom poular Game (Diablo II LOD) and I just got done rebuilding a computer. After I rebuil it, I couldnt load D2 because of "Error 22: A Critical Error has occured while initializing directDraw. I found a forum and someone told me to put "User Account" shortcut into a folder. I did that and it worked. But after re-installing windows Xp, I have the same problem and cant seem to find that forum. If anyone knows or has any clue what Im talking about, that would be awesome. Thx *Michael

Hi. I urgently need to get access to some documents which were done on Word 2000. Initially I tried to open them and realised I hadn't installed the patch and was given the expected error. I then installed the patch and am still unable to open the documents, I still get the same error message. I've checked the version number of the updated file (Mso.dll) and everything matches as expected. Is there something obvious I've missed ? -- Thanks, Stuart. MCP, MSP. www.stu.uk.com
