If you run Programs|Accessories|System Tools|Backup, then choose ERD, then if you check the box for
"Also backup....", then the reg will also be backed up to

Hi, I need to be able to backup the entire O/S (\winnt) to a CD-R. The CD-R software (Adaptec
Easy-CD v4) cannot access the protected O/S files, as is usual, and this PC does not have a tape
drive (whose software can do that OK). I would like to be able to do the above simple copy; then the
CD-R writing software will object to almost everything in "config" and skip it, but the copy in
"config2" will get backed up. Is there some special version of "xcopy" which can do this? I have the
NT4 Resource kit which contains SCOPY but that is only for NTFS (this is a FAT32 partition).
Alternatively, has anybody produced CD writing software which can access everything? Nobody this
this for NT AFAIK, apart from the weird Ultrabac -> UDF -> CD-R route.
