Backing up Your Files

The love that you shower on your hard drive isn’t requited. Eventually, it will betray you and fail catastrophically, taking your data with it. Forestall the heartbreak by making regular backup copies of your work. Backups also protect you against accidental deletions and let you archive finished projects for remote storage.

XP’s Backup program lets you back up an entire hard disk or specified files and folders periodically. You can back up to a tape drive, but most people choose to back up to a second local drive, a shared network folder, or a high-capacity storage device such as an external USB drive. Never back up to a different partition on the same physical hard drive, because if the drive fails, all partitions go with it. The Backup or Restore Wizard walks you through the process of backing up your files or restoring backed-up files when disaster strikes.
