tech-tricksIt’s one of the most important things you can ever do with your data – back it up. Plenty of people don’t do it, yet Windows has an easy way to ensure all your data is copied.

 

To set up an automatic back-up, head to the Control Panel. Then, click the “backup and restore” option.

 

You’ll see a few different options there, including the ability to create system image or system repair disc on the left-hand side. But on the main panel, you should see the option to “set up backup”.

 

Just follow the prompts – including where you can choose which folders to back-up, and where to locate your back-up file.
