    What kind of media do you want to backup to?  Second internal hard drive, external hard drive, dvd etc...?

      To do a Backup in WindowsME, click Start>> Programs>> Accessories>> System Tools>>> select "Backup".  Self-explanitory after that

      The backup tool is not automatically installed with ME, see KB264541 for an installation guide and see the quote below which is extracted from the guide:

      Quote
      The Microsoft Backup tool has been included with the retail, released version of Windows Me to help maintain the functionality of Microsoft Backup after an upgrade to Windows Me. It is important to note that the Microsoft Backup tool cannot provide extensive backup functionality. Because of this, if you need to backup data, Microsoft recommends you obtain and install a third-party backup program.
