    I was looking at the Backup Utility that is included in XP. It looks very easy to use. Why do most (if not all), XP users use 3rd party software without using XPs own Backup Utility? Is it not good enough?

    If you are using/relying on the built in NT Backup to backup your system, that is primitive technology (obviously - since it will ask you for a floppy when it is done). If you have a disaster (even a minor one), you are going to have a big problem trying to recover your stuff if you don't have a floppy drive - and maybe even if you do have a floppy drive you are very likely still to a big problem if you need to restore your stuff.

    above from here

    Thank you Elizabeth. Now I know the reason why people don't use it.
