13.1. Protect your system against catastrophic failure

Although it isn't common, a complete, catastrophic failure of your system is certainly possible through hardware failure, virus or worm, or even user error. Even a minor malfunction or mistake can take a big bite out of your day or even your week. So backing up your system and planning for catastrophe, even if it doesn't occur, is important.

13.1.1. Back up critical data

First and foremost, you need to back up your critical data. This means backing up any documents or applications that can't be restored or at least restored easily. You can use the Backup utility included with Windows 2000 to back up your critical data and applications to a file on a local or network hard disk, diskette, or tape. You'll find Backup under Start Programs Accessories System Tools Backup.
