Are you talking about the online backup function of the Organizer?
There is no other back-up function in Premiere Elements that I'm aware of.
Sorry for not being specific enough. I am talking about the backup function (not online) in the Organizer. I did a backup and restore to my EHD and found only the .avi files from my project, not all the ancillary files involved in the project.
Did you initially add those ancillary files into the organizer or directly into PRE? If the latter then you can back up the project from within PRE using File> Project Archiver.

The only back-up function built into the Organizer is one for backing your files online to Photoshop.com.
Neale is correct. I used Backup/Restore catalog to move my Elements data to a new external hard drive. That is when I discovered that only image files were in the catalog, not the ancillary project files from PRE. In retrospect I am not really surprised, but now I wonder whether projects in PSE (albums, slideshows, etc) are also treated this way. Any more thoughts? Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Which ancillary files were missing?
