It's not installed by default but "msi" installation file is found on the
installation disk in the Valueadd\Msft\Ntbackup folder. There are couple of
points noted in the reademe found in the folder:
NTBackup Backup/Restore and ASR release notes
1. ASR is not supported on home edition.
IF you install NtBackup from the CD to the Home Edition, ASR functionality
will appear to work fine during the backup session. Since the setup does
not support ASR in the home edition, there is no way to initiate the ASR
restore in case of a disaster. If you need to restore from this session,
install Windows XP manually and then restore from the ASR media.
2. Backup to CDRW
If you decide to backup to a CDRW, you cannot target that device directly.
You must create a backup set of 650MB or less and backup to a file. After
the file is complete, copy the file to the CDRW.
Please refer to the readme for XP home edition for additional notes.
