    Does Dell install ntbackup on it's MCE machines by default?

    If not, how do I install it from Dell's recovery disks?

    I've got to make a house call to a friend that just got a Dell
    Dimension system with XP/MCE installed. It has the usual "recovery
    disks". No MS distro.

    I want to do a full backup once all the applications are installed and
    tailored. ntbackup is an under-appreciated tool and will do this to
    the external drive, just fine.

    Dell doesn't have recovery disks. They have real XP disks, so you install
    it just like you would the retail XP

    I hope so.

    I've looked at the labels on the CDs that came with the machine none
    of them seem to be a MS distro CD. I'll look at the contents.

    Should be a Dell Recovery DVD for Windows MCE.....(too large for a CD).

    I just checked on one of my E510's that has MCE.

    Yes NTbackup is already installed.
