Q&A

Q1:How often should I defragment my hard disk?
A1: You1 should defragment every week or so. Depending on the amount of file accessing you do, you might need to defragment more or less often. If you notice your disk speed slowing down a bit, you'll find that defragmenting speeds the access process somewhat.
Q2:Which kind of backup, a full or differential backup, should I perform?
A2: The first time you back up you should make a full backup. After you make one full backup, you can make subsequent differential backups of only those files that have changed. Be sure that you save the full backup, however, so that you can restore everything if you need to. If you have a disk failure, you'll restore the entire full backup and then restore each differential backup set of files.

After you've made several differential backups, you might want to make a full backup once again. By making a full backup every once in a while, you will be able to reuse your differential tapes or disks.
