Backing Up

Your computer is loaded with all sorts of files- documents, pictures, music, windows system files, and much more. And then there are the programs you have installed, with all of their files.
But backing up a computer is a lot easier than you think!

The reason we back things up is so we donít lose them. So what is it we donít want to lose? We donít want to lose any of the files we have saved or created. In other words, we donít have to worry about backing up the Microsoft Word program, we have to worry about the documents we create in Microsoft Word.

There may be hundreds of thousands of different files sitting on your computer, but you only need to worry about the files youíve created or saved. This includes documents youíve written, pictures youíve produced or downloaded, music, charts, etc. You donít have to worry about losing Windows or Microsoft Word itself, because you have the disc needed to reinstall them if necessary.

The one wrinkle in backing up is finding a place to put the files you back up.
