Backup Mypc

Probably not :)

 

If you do a search around the boards here you'll see a lot of people have problems with that program, so you're probably better off without it. However, stand by a while and you'll doubtless get an earful from someone about backups.

If it came with the hardware, it is an OEM [Original Equipment Mfgr] Version, and when the OEM contracts to use it (and they have it modified - generally with reduced capability), they also accept the responsibility to support it. So contact HP.

 

Beyond that - the term 'backup' is casually used for two different things - archiving data (.doc's, .jpg's, .mp3's, etc), and an emergency system restore. BUMP is an emergency system restore program, as are Norton Ghost by Symantec, and Acronis True Image.

 

If what you want is archiving, use your new Hard Drive (transfer, don't use a backup program), or burn to R media using a Sessions-based program such as Roxio Classic Creator, Sonic Data Disc, or the built-in WinXP CD burning ability.
