Windows 98 includes a Microsoft Backup Tool for Removable Media Devices

1. Click Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Click Backup

2. Select the files you want to backup

3. In the where to Backup Box, Click File

4. In the next box, type the path for the removable media device and a filename for the backup set

If the Removable Media Device is drive letter E, and you want to use the name Mybackup.qic for the file set, type:

e:\mybackup.qic

5. Click Start

You can also use this method to back up to another hard disk or a network share.

Note: After you create the backup file, you can store the file on a CD ROM or other type of permanent media To backup data directly to your CD ROM Burner, you must use software included with the CD ROM Burner.

Contact Microsoft for the best backup computer manufacturers to use.
