What is backup and why back Up??

Simply backup means that you have a copy of data stored somewhere else meaning 2 copies.

Backing up your data is the most important task you will perform on your computer. If you don't have a backup, you risk losing your data (photos)... permanently. It's not a matter of IF you'll lose your data, it's a matter of WHEN.

Loss of data happens in many ways. The most common cause is physical failure of the hard drive that stores your data. You have everything saved on your computer's hard drive. That hard drive will eventually fail. There's a popular saying in the computer world -- "There are only two types of hard drives - the ones that have failed and the ones that will fail."

Another cause for data loss is power failure or spikes. It can result in loss of the file you are currently working on or your entire hard drive because you did not save it before the power failed.

Virus attacks can also render your data useless. There are many computer viruses out there that will delete files on an infected machine. That's why an effective anti-virus program is extremely important.

What data should you back up?

The answer is simple. Back up anything you can't replace!

  • Documents
    • Letters
    • Reports
    • Spreadsheets
    • Mailing lists
  • Email
  • Financial Records
    • Tax Returns
    • Banking records
    • Investment records
  • Photographs
  • Music
  • Movies/Videos
  • Addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • Saved games
  • Computer and program settings

One way to simplify backing up is to store all of your data in one place. That's what the "My Documents" folder is for. Whenever you create a new file, like a Microsoft Word document, for example, you should save it in a folder in "My Documents". To create a folder called "Word" (you can name the folder whatever you want and create as many folders as you like):

  • Open the "My Documents" folder.
  • Select the "File" menu item.
  • Select the "New" menu item.
  • Select the "Folder" menu item.
  • Enter a name for the folder.
  • Press the "Enter" key.
