Re: system backup problems

Hey Jackie -- my question then is, how do I backup my address book, email 
and other application data that is not in my documents? -- oh but in a 
system backup, aren't these files supposed to be left untouched?
norton has its problems. I hope it is worth the $$ in keeping bugs out.
Thanks.

U would avoid these errors entirely if you'd simply put all the files
u wish to back up under the "my documents" folder. It makes backing up
your critical data a whole lot easier. It's not so much a norton
problem as it is a windows problem, in that windows cannot back up
live files, e.g., files that are being used.
