Synopsis

Start All Programs Accessories System Tools Backup

Backup copies files from your hard drive to a tape drive, second hard drive, or other removable storage device for the purpose of safeguarding or archiving your data. Microsoft Backup works by creating a backup set, or a collection of selected files to be backed up to a removable storage device. This backup set, along with all the selected options available in Backup are known collectively as a backup "job." To begin creating a backup job, choose the Backup tab, and use the familiar Explorer-like two-pane view to navigate through your folders. Click on the checkbox next to any object to select it for backup, and then click Start Backup when you're done.
