Backup System requirement for XP service pack 3 installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows Software update XP service pack 3 is asking me to back up my system before installing the update but i don't know how and i am fearful that i may loose all of my documents and programmes that i have on my computer.  Please explain, step by step, if anyone can, how to back up my system and how it may affect my files/programs.  Thanks in advance.

  • You can use any of a large number of backup tools such as NTBackup (built into Windows), Acronis True Image, etc. For more information on backing up before installing SP3, though, please consult the Windows XP forums. This is the Windows Home Server forum.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
