How do I back up my computer?


I keep hearing people talk about how important it is to backup your computer so that you don't lose important data if things go wrong. Thing is, I'm not sure how. I don't want to lose all my stuff, though! Thanks for helping me out.

The safest way is to back it up on a flash drive or a CD. Or move the files to another computer and keep them there until needed. Or you can use an online service like my pc backup.. For example: http://www.squidoo.com/my-pc-backup-review2

You can use http://www.dropbox.com to easily back-up your files aside from having an external hard drive. I know how to fix my computer in novice level that's why backing-up my files is very much important to me.

Take your backup on external drive or any protected place. i.e. external hard disk drive.

Backing up your computer is a simple way of securing yourself from some pretty potentially devastating losses should your hard drive ever fry, or any other major problem occur with your personal computer.

Some operating systems come with a pre-installed backup program; Windows has one, for instance. You can also download third-party software on the internet. You'll also need to have a device to back your information up to. You can backup to your own computer, but I never do; in the case of the computer just becoming totally junked, you can't retrieve your data. I have an external hard drive that I backup to on a regular basis, and keep in a safe place. If you're particularly nervous, you can even backup to more than one outside device.

Once you have the device selected, the actual backup process is relatively self-explanatory. Open the backup program of your choice, tell it to send the information to your selected device, and walk away. Backing up your computer can take a while, depending on how much data you're moving, so be willing to wait a while! This is a valuable thing to do, though, and it's worth the time it takes. You can even set it up at night before you go to bed, and by the time you come back in the morning, it will be done!

Here's a video of a pretty amusing guy giving tips on how to backup your computer. He's a little nerdy, but the tips he presents are definitely valuable.
