Can someone give me a walk through on how to back up my boot ini file and how to copy it back if it ever corrupts I have been googling but nothing seems to be definitive. I have no particular reason to be doing this but want to learn
:thanks

Assuming its XP - have a read of This here (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/289022) as to how to edit it & Save it - One way - when opened to editing select the whole boot.ini, then copy / paste it to another editing program, either word, wordpad or Notepad - safe it some place.

AND Heres one way (http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/ht/repairbootini.htm) to replace it if damaged and wont open normally or in safe mode.

Usually the second method WT posted works most of the time.
