    Default Backup woes

    If I want to make a backup of my 'Documents & Settings, no matter what prog I use (Winbackup, Winzip etc.), I always end up with errors and an incomplete copy. The logfiles than show that certain files could not be copied due to the fact that they are in use.
    If that is the case....how can I ever make a decent copy ?
    Is 'safe mode' an option ?

    Sure try the safe mode, but I don't think it will help.

    What are you using CD/DVD/another drive ?

    I want to put the copy at first on the HD and than burn it to DVD, but already during copying I get the error. Maybe in itself not THAT strange as it's perfectly normal that certain files are in use at the time. But how can I than ever make a decent backup (apart from creating an image etc.) ???
