The Backup option does not appear under System Tools. I do recall seeing it
there before, I think it may have disappeared after I downloaded the Service
Pack 2, but I can't be sure. Can anyone help me to find it or re-install it?

It's on your XP cd as an optional install. Just slip your XP cd into your cd
player and you should find it. :)

Thanks for all your help. I've had my computer for about 3 yrs and the only
disk I have is the recovery cd. Would the bacup utility be on that?

Depends on your OEM, but probably not. You can download
ntbackup.msi at

It might be, depends on your vendor. However, you can download it
easier, which I did from advice received here. Check out this link:
