We frequently see this question in newsgroups from customers running different editions of Windows Vista. The table below is an excerpt from page 17 of the Windows Vista Product Guide. If you’d like an overview of all the backup features, see section 3.10 Windows Backup and Restore beginning on page 87.

You can download the Windows Vista Product Guide from the Microsoft Download Center.
