I know I am novice to Vista, but last night was my first time meeting Vista closely and I touched it and I could setup a peer-to-peer workgroup including 3 Vista + a printer and all were good tested Ok!
but then when I tried to come up with backup plan I couldn't as there were no ntbackup.exe file or GUI like before, or where could I have got the option to select my files and folders to backup!
Ok! I know I can download NTBackup utility but why removing it and not enhancing it in the same interface...! oops sorry! maybe I am too fast.. so please let me know how to backup, I am listening! and I didn't have Internet at the time I was setting up that small office workgroup!
Hey Christoph_P568234: the two chats I mentioned occur in July, not June, so you're still OK :). Also, there's an RSS feed for chat transcripts that you can subscribe to for future chats.
I missed the chat and would like to read a transcript if this is possible. If there is one where can I find it?

I am unaware of a way to disable Synx Center but that is a GREAT question for the above mentioned chat sessions.
How can I disable Sync Center? I also disabled the offline files because I don't use it, but sometimes I see mobysync.exe running. Is it a bug?
