Backup with your Operating System Software
You can use Windows® Backup software to backup your data. Run the wizard by going to ‘Start’ menu and select ‘Backup’ from ‘Accessories’. You will get an option whereby the important data in your computer could be automatically backed up and protected from possible loss. You can choose to protect image files, music, movies or any other document which is important to you.
Online backup solutions provide an excellent choice to backup your important files. By choosing an online backup, you will have your files intact even if your system crashes down so pathetically that it cannot be retrieved at all. This will save you from the possible loss of data in case of hard disk crash. Data will be available online if you want to access it in case of an emergency.
Prior to backing up the data in some external storage device such as a USB or CD/DVD, make sure you run a whole system scan for checking if there are any malwares or viruses in the system. This will avoid the infection from passing on to the storage media and infecting the backed up files too. It is always important to have a good antivirus installed in your computer so that the system will be free from infections.
