    To create an Automated System Recovery set using Backup
    Open Backup.
    The Backup Utility Wizard starts by default, unless it is disabled.

    Click the Advanced Mode button in the Backup Utility Wizard.
    On the Tools menu, click ASR Wizard.
    Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.

    You will need a blank 1.44 megabyte (MB) floppy disk to save your system settings and media to contain the backup files.

    To start Backup, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Backup.
    Only those system files necessary for starting up your system will be backed up by this procedure. To backup your data, see Backing up files and folders.
