Novostor Backup.

I have recently switched to using Novastor backup plus program under both my NT and win 95 operating systems from colorado backup software. I have a T1000e external backup drive by HP/Colorado. I noticed that everytime I try to backup using Novaback+, it always had an extra "2Meg" size files not connected with the files I am backing up at all. For ex. I tried to back up 20,000 bytes long data in c:\junk\directory. ALong with it, it backs up c:\windows\system\<files>. I tried under bothe win NT and 95 OS and same thing happens. My question is why does it backup the extra 2Meg bytes of file and do i have to restore them as well, when I try to restore my 20,000 bytes data.

Sounds like it is backing up the registry files aswell, i am not familiar with novastor, but i am confident that it has an option do NOT backup the registry files.
