XP Home doesn't come with the NTBackup utility, but XP Pro does. If you
know someone who has Pro, simple copy C:\Windows\System32\NTBackup.exe
from his machine to yours in the same place, put a shortcut to that in
your C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start
Menu\Programs\Accessories\System Tools folder, and you're in. No other
DLLs or some such are needed, it's all in the .exe file.

Another option is Mox Backup to save all his profile data to his

Then when he reinstalls his OS he can install SM and restore his save
yeah, thats one option. Another is your zip program, or even windows
backup program. I think xp has one? I know win98 had one, but I can't
find it in xp.
actually, you're sort of correct on that. After
reading what you said, I did some digging around, and
this is what I found:
Windows XP Professional automatically installs
ntbackup.exe. Retail XP Home Edition (both full retail
and upgrade versions) include ntbackup.exe on CD but it
is not installed by default.
I didn't know this, and when I took a look at my CD,
low and behold, there it was.
