The Windows Vista backup files have the extension .zip. Backup data is automatically compressed, and each file has a maximum compressed size of 200 MB. A Windows Vista backup file can be saved to a hard drive, any recordable media, or to another computer or server connected to your network. The backup can only be created from an NTFS partition. The target hard drive must be either NTFS or FAT formatted.
