Thanks for your response. Just one problem:
Where do I find the folders for backing up:
1. OE and its Address Book.
Full instructions for backing up both are here:
I went to your given link and Microsoft led me from one page to another
till I finally gave up after about an hour. As I said, I am not that good
on computers, and you could please make it simple for me by letting me
know where are the folders (the folders path). I would then copy and paste
to the CD and I hope that would do it. I am not going to use any backup
program. But I still need to know how to test if my backups were
successful enough to be easily restored back to the HD after the computer
has been repaired and perhaps reformatted.
Well, all you needed to do was click on "Backup" along the top of the page
and that would have taken you straight to http://www.insideoe.com/backup/.
NB Although the website is by an MS MVP, it's not a Microsoft site, and
Microsoft didn't lead you anywhere for an hour!
I'd advise you not to just "copy and paste to the CD and... hope that would
do it"; a small amount of study - reading through the site - will pay
dividends, and you won't have to cross your fingers and hope it works. Well,
no more than the rest of us do... It might seem daunting, but that's just
because it's unfamiliar; take the plunge!
