I am using MS Windows Backup to backup files on my C: drive to an external drive (F:). I am not sure how to use the tool. I like to ensure that files on some folders outside of c:\Documents and Settings fodler is being backed up. I have files in c:\documents that I need to include in the backup. How do I know for sure its included?

The default backup that comes with Vista automatically takes care of files outside of that directory.  It bases the backup based on File Types you specify during the wizzard.  I personally do not like the default backup progra, and recomend that you use NT Backup instead.
