I'll try to make this clear.
I want to format my hard drives with Vista, the same I have now but keep some files and use them on the "new" hard drives.

I tried but to make a back up using contro panel, and some tools in there but it says that I have to open the Task Manager to make a back up of my files, either on my D; or in a CD/DVD disk.

Just to be clear, you plan on formatting your hard drive, and installing Windows Vista on it. This will delete EVERY THING on the computer, and you will basically be starting from scratch after the Vista installation.

The best way to backup your files (which you want to save) for a operation like this is to just copy and paste them to another location (other than your hard drive, which will be formatted). You could use a USB flash drive, another computer, etc. The other option would be to burn the files to a CD/DVD, but you will need a CD/DVD burner installed in your computer to do that.

yes, RTAdams89 is right. the only way you can do that is move your files to another location. you can create another partition in your hard disk. if you want to create more space in your hard disk, visit this link. The procedure is quite easy and doesnt require you to know any programming knowledge
