To back up your documents in Windows XP, I have found xcopy to be a very

If you use XP in the usual way, you probably just need to save stuff in
Desktop and Setting while excluding some system folders (e.g. Cache, etc.).

newsgroup on Replies sent to my email address are just
filtered to a folder in my mailbox and get periodically deleted without
ever having been read.
