    Hi everyone,

    I am just wondering that if you use the "files settings and transfer wizard" of XP, and storing to a dvd. Would this then allow you to do a reinstall of PC, and then restore various files. I am thinking mainly my inbox/address book of microsoft outlook, and various photos etc. I am sure there is more, although I can't think of it. I know that you can import/export address etc from this program, but it does sound ideal to "backup" all.

    Or have i got this program wrong?

    Kind regards

    Darren

    I recently found these guides for backing up Outlook and Outlook Express data, very handy for doing a clean install...

    Hi,

    Many thanks for the replies. All very useful, however I was thinking more on all settings of PC and not just email.
    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. My PC is grinding down, due to internet/programs etc being loaded.
