The MS DOS prompt does'nt like the BACKUP command - it's giving error
its' not recognised as Internal or External comamand..

PLEASE ADVISE on HOW i can copy from C: to to my FLashdisk

    Your flash disk should have been given a drive letter. First find out that letter, then you can give that as the destination.
