How to take backup of files and applications in Toshiba® Portégé R600
The Toshiba® Portégé R600 laptops have many superior features such as powerful dual core Intel SU9400 processor, genuine Windows Vista Business, 3GB DDR2 SDRAM of 800 MHz, 4500 MHD Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, and extended battery life, which give excellent performance to the system. There are many cases where you need to take back up of all your system settings, files and programs. It might be because the hard drive crashed or you need to restore previous versions or back to factory settings. The Windows Vista Business 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems allow a full backup of all settings, files and programs and also create an image of the hard drive. You only need to reload the image and all the settings would be restored.
Given below are the important guidelines to take backup of Toshiba® Portégé R600 and also the factors to be kept in mind while doing so.
- Windows complete PC backup
- External hard drive
- Proper functioning of external device
Windows complete PC backup
Windows Complete PC Backup allows you to take entire backup of all your system settings, programs and files in Toshiba® Portégé R600. It will create an image of the hard drive and save the backup on another external hard drive. Make sure that you have plugged in the hard drive device before you start the backup process. You need to choose Backup and Restore Center from Control Panel and select Back up Computer option. In the Windows Complete PC Backup window, select the required drive to save the backup of your files and programs.
External hard drive
Always ensure that you are saving the backup on an external hard drive and not on the same hard drive. Most of the newly advanced systems would be having two hard drives. If not, you need to buy a new one for taking backup. But it would be better if you save the backup on a CD-RW drive or an external hard disk. Because you might not be able to restore the data from a hard drive if the system gets corrupted.
Always ensure the proper functioning of the external hard disk or any device to which you intend to take the backup. If the device is damaged, your entire backup data will be lost and sometimes it will not be recovered back. Thus ensuring the proper functioning of the device is a must for taking the backup of your important system files and documents.
