Scheduled backups are an integral part of any effective disaster recovery plan.

The Windows Backup Utility is offered in a free download on Microsoft's website and, while it is not the most feature-rich tool on the market, the Windows Backup Utility will back up files to hard disk, CD-Recordable (CD-R) or tape at the times and dates specified for the scheduled job.

Editing scheduled jobs can be easily done.

Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of the window. Select "All Programs."

Choose "Accessories" and "System Tools."

Select "Backup."

Click the hyperlink "Advanced Mode" in the "Backup or Restore Wizard" window.

Choose the "Scheduled Jobs" tab.

Click on the icon in the calendar for the job you want to edit.

Select the "Properties" button from the "Scheduled data" tab.

Choose the "Schedule" tab.

Select the task schedule from the drop-down box beneath "Schedule Task."

Set the start time by clicking the up and down arrows in the box under "Start Time."

Choose the "Settings" tab.

Select the desired options using the check boxes under "Scheduled Task Completed," "Idle Time" and "Power Management."

Click the "OK" button.

Click the "OK" button in the "Scheduled Job Options" window.

Type the user name used to run the job in the space beside "Run as" in the "Set Account Information" window.

Type the password and confirm the password. Click the "OK" button.

Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the "Back up utility" window.

Hope this helps.

how to back up a hard drive

Determine how much space you need.

The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files.

You can do this in a couple of ways.

Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties."

This shows the approximate size of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system.

If your hard drive size is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing.

Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it.

Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the size of the folder.

This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only.

Choose a backup method. Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service.

There are advantages and disadvantages to all.

An external drive is convenient because you can plug it into other computers and immediately transfer or copy files without needing the Internet or having to worry at all about security.

However you have to carry the drive with you and always face the remote possibility that both your computer and the hard drive would break.

Data disks provide the same advantages and disadvantages as external hard drives: portability, but the possibility of theft or breakage.

You can also use an online backup service.

These services range in price depending on the amount of storage.

The advantage of an online service is that you can access your files from anywhere there is Internet, and it is generally cheaper, especially for small amounts of service.

Also, you don't need to carry or store another piece of equipment.

The disadvantage is your backup is stored on the service's external server, so security is a potential issue.

Back up your files. Once you have chosen your method of backup, do not forget the most important step: back up your files.

For external media, go into "My Computer" and double-click the "C" drive to open it.

Select all the files if backing up your entire hard drive, or select your "Backup" folder if just backing up your important files.

Holding your "CTRL" key, drag your selected files to your back up source, either your external hard drive or data disk drive.

Release your mouse button and "CTRL" key and allow the files to be copied onto your backup media.

Hope this helps.

Hi rahul,

It would be better if you could some how take a backup of all the data first an then go for a system restore.But anyways just download the Bitdefender toatal security.It has 1month free trial and then run a scan.If you have anyother antispyware software you can use that also.Because spysweeper has no trial version.
I'll be online at so you can come there so that we can chat.
