Set up a regular backup
Wednesday, September 14, 2011/
Backing up your files is critically important. Too many businesses ignore this critical practice and get into trouble when they’re caught out.
But you should also back up your personal files as well, in order to make sure you aren’t left out in the cold when files are accidentally deleted.
To do so, open the Start Menu, and then All Programs. Head to Maintenance, and then “Backup and Restore”. There, you’ll see an option to “Set up Backup”.
Once you open that window you’ll be able to set up which drives you want to back up, and how often. Make sure you do this at least once a month to ensure all your files are up-to-date.
