Windows Backup Utility

Specs: Windows XP
I want to back up recorded video on a Windows DVR machine using the Windows backup utility. The video is on two data drives. Therefore, I check the boxes for the drives (D&E) to be backed up. I'm trying to send these folders and files to an external USB hard drive (G) on the same machine.I then put in "G:\Backup.bkf "in the "backkup media or filename" field. However, the only file that ends up in the G drive is the utility file. Any reccomendations would be appreciated.

500 gig for D & E...100 gig for G. By the way, I'm using the Windows Backup Utility- not sure what you mean by ntbackup. Thanks for the reply.

What is happening is that the application is being wrote to the USB drive and not the intended folders that are in D & E.

Simply put, ntbackup is the Windows executable file that runs Windows Backup Utility application. Get it?

Oops I forgot to say one more thing. You had to press 22 keys to type Windows Backup Utility. Why not just press 8 keys for ntbackup to discuss the same thing?
