Chapter 33. Managing the Hard Disk > Backup Tools and Strategies

Backup Tools and Strategies

Nobody plans to lose or corrupt an important file. But then again, no one I know gets up in the morning and plans to crash his car either. Things happen, though, and for all the same reasons you buy car insurance, you should also be taking all the necessary steps to safeguard all those bits and bytes that reside on your system's hard drive.

Windows 2000 Backup Program

Windows 2000 is installed with a backup utility that should meet the needs of most individual users. With it, you can back up folders or files—both local and remote—either to a Windows 2000 recognized tape device, to a removable storage device (JAZ drive, MO drive, zip drive, and so on), or to a file on a local or remote drive. If Windows 2000 can read the file (FAT16, FAT32, or NTFS natively), then it can be backed up.
