OK, so I finally have a nice new external HD attached to my system, but can't find ANY info in the WindowsXP help files about how to do a backup! I seem to recall that this was a simple matter of a couple of clicks in previous versions of Windows, but I can't find anything about an automatic backup utility in XP. What's up with that? Do I have to download some 3rd party program to safeguard my data/programs or do I just select everything and drag-and-drop to the new drive?

Anybody out there know what I'm missing here???
