    So, after installing SP1, the XP Backup app isn't working anymore. It gets through the shadow backup part, but as soon as it actually starts writing data to the CD drive, it hangs. Any idears?

    Thanks,

    Try reloading the backup app.

    Can you just load it by itself? Since it's part of XP I didn't think that was possible.

    Is this what you're after>

    To Install the Backup Utility Manually
    Insert the Windows XP Home Edition CD.
    Click Perform additional tasks.
    Navigate to the VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP folder.
    Double-click the ntbackup.msi file.
