No, I think that the limited backup in Home Basic and Home Premium is simply
that it is a basic backup program. If you have Vista Business or Vista Ultimate,
you get the ability to do image backups of entires drives, which is a nice
addition not available in the Home Basic and Premium versions of Vista.
OneCare backup works on both XP and Vista and is a value added subscription in
that it is designed to be part of the OneCare security package. OneCare can
perform its backup as part of Tune-up and can also monitor and report system
"health" by alerting you that a backup is needed.
