One of my favorate DOS programs was X-Copy. It would copy large files over multiple discs. Unlike backup software. X-Copy made an exact copy that did not need a recover program open. True to backup a computer you would use more discs. I felt it was safer and easer. Whith the inexpensive DVD disc's a couple extra discs to back up my hard drive does not matter.

Problem can x-copy be configured to copy to a DVD drive? Or is there another program that will make an automatic backup. just a prompt to change disc's, without compressing my data.
Thank You

Wouldn't it be simpler to use an external hard drive? Why would you want to copy Windows and program files anyway? If you trash XP, they will all need reinstalled. If you wanted to make an image of your drive Acronis or some other software might be simpler than trying to modify this X-copy software.
