You may receive the following error message when you start Microsoft Backup for Windows on an NEC portable:

File is not a setup file C:\DOS\DEFAULT.SET


The following two conditions cause this error:
    NEC BIOS creates a DEFAULT.SET file in the DOS directory when the battery starts running low.
    The DEFAULT.SET file in the DOS directory is corrupt.


To work around this problem, delete or rename the DEFAULT.SET file, and then restart Microsoft Backup for Windows.
