Hi...I got a SP2 CD from Costco. I currently have WinXP Pro. I read the READMESP.HTM file from the cd, read it untill i got to BEfore you install. It says: Perform a full backup of the files that you keep on your computer.
For details about how to perform a full back up, see the topic, "Backing up files and folders," in Help and Support Center.

You can use the Backup and Restore Wizard to back up documents, pictures, and other files.

Important

Backing up your own files is different from archiving service pack files. Archiving files enables you to remove the service pack later if you want to, but does not back up personal files such as pictures or documents.


Is it just like dumping your computer of everything? Will my files I have on my computer now still be there?

Backing up is copying your files to another drive or removable media -- CDs or DVDs for example. Your files are still there.
