Windows XP Home Issues

NTBackup is the executable name for Windows Backup and is the utility that BackupAssist uses to perform the backup operation. It is required to be installed in order to use BackupAssist.

Unfortunately, NTBackup does not come pre-installed on Windows XP Home, but it can be installed manually from the Windows XP Home installation CD, and there are details on how to achieve this here:;en-us;q302894

Additionally, with Windows XP Home, by default the Administrator password has a blank password which will not work with BackupAssist.

Please see either Option 1 or Option 2 in WindowsXPAuthentication for details on how to resolve this.
