Anyway - should I do this and how? How do you know what to backup? Surely it wouldn't be all the programs and can you back it up right on your computer somewhere.
I know nothing about this, so you might have to talk kids language for me.
The simplest solution is to perform a system image backup.
WIN | type Backup | Enter |
in the left-hand side click on Create a System Image |
you wil be presented with dialogs asking where do you want the image to be saved and which partitions you want to backup.
The selection dialogs are shown in the tutorial which was specified in a previous reply.
There are only two types of people: Those who make backups and those who wish they had.
If you ever have to restore your computer using a system image that was created, then you can use a System Repair Disc.
A system repair disc has many uses which if all goes well, then you will never need. The chances are you will need it at sometime.
Here is how to create a system repair disc:
DISC - CREATE A SYSTEM REPAIR DISC
| type System Repair
key | Create Disc
