volume setting

Since last week my Windows XP is doing a strange thing when I adjust the volume by clicking on the speaker icon: the default sound (useful to check if the volume is correctly set) is played through the internal PC speaker instead of the speakers connected to the sound card... Why is this happening ?
Another question: what is the best backup software for Windows XP ? I'd like to backup/restore single files and folders, not entire partitions like you do with Ghost or Drive Image.
Thanks!

Dunno on the speaker thing. XP has it's own backup utility. Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Backup. Should be all you need.

Thank you, but I need multi-volume backup to a CDR device while that utility only detects the 3.5" floppy as storage media.

I don't know if you're looking to buy something or not, but I think there's a few resale products available. This one, NTI Backup NOW! Deluxe, has a 10-day trial period.

Nero Burning Rom or Roxio's EZCD Creator are probably the most widely used general purpose burning utilities. My personal favorite is Fireburner. Fireburner doesn't install, it sits in its own folder and does it's thing. I make image files (iso's) with WinISO and burn those with Fireburner.

PowerQuest's Drive Image or Norton Ghost will burn a complete image of your drive to CD... multi-volume.

I'd suggest not burning multi-volume back-up files or disk images. If one of the disks gets damaged or becomes unreadable for some reason... you lose the whole lot. Something to consider.
