How do I backup %systemroot%\Repair folder


I need to run a Windows XP Repair.  An article suggests that I backup the following:

"Backup copies of your registry files (in the %systemroot%\Repair folder) are also replaced after the in-place upgrade is complete.  Copy these registry backups to another location before you perform an in-place upgrade/Repair Install.  You may need to use them after the in-place upgrade is complete."

How do I do this?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I am actually not sure where it is?  I can not find it in the file structure.  Not sure what %/systemroot/% is.

Click Start, click run and enter %systemroot%. It's usually C:\Windows on XP and W2K3, or C:\WinNT on NT4 and W2K.
