Re: backup computer

Compact disks are too smalll to back up a computer, as your computers hard drive contains gigabytes of info and a cd is only 800mb at best. DVDs are more suited. First, you want to make a disk image of your hard drive, then back that up to another drive, ideally an external drive solely intended for back up with nothing more on it than the application used to execute the back up. Backing up to optical disks has never been considered a valid form of back up. Hope this helps.

How to back up your computer, how to back up pc

Backing up your computer is recommended if the data you keep on your computer is to important to lose. I will go over some tips and tricks on backing up your PC data.

Recommended Storage Devices
I recommend you use USB mass storage devices for backing up and retaining data. A good example of a mass storage device commonly used for data backups is external USB hard drives. I personally like Western Digital USB hard drives but there are many out there to choose from. You can take a look at some examples by visiting You can get 1TB drives very cheap and the prices continue to drop.

You can use other types of storage like USB flash drives, DVDs and even other computers. USB flash drives and external hard drives are cheap, easy to use and small, making them excellent storage devices.

It is recommended that you store data off of the computer who's data you are backing up. Why? If the computer is damaged, this can potentially ruin your backup and you lose the data. You want to move the data off the computer to reduce the number of failure points. For data that is even more critical to you, you can create additional backup copies so if one backup storage device fails, you have a copy of this. This process is called mirroring.

Backup Software
There are different ways to actually back up the data. You can do this manually or use software. I recommend using software to simplify the process. There are also numerous backup software utilities out there, some free and some costly. A popular free backup tool for average computer users is EASEUS Todo Backup and click here for the user guide. This tool is very easy to use.

An example of backing up data manually would be to click and drag the data like videos or images to a storage device. If you have a lot of data, this can be time consuming.

Backup Process
The backup process is simple and straightforward when using a USB storage device and back up software.

-Download and install your backup software tool.
-Plug in your storage device.
-Make sure your computer recognizes your storage device. Most devices are plug and play so once you plug it in, it should install device drivers and be ready to use.
-Run EASEUS Todo Backup software and click Backup to start the process or reference user guide for software you are using.
-Once your backup is done, you can store the storage device in a safe place.

What is the best backup method for me?
There are different types of backup methods and each have different pro's and con's so I advise to read up on backup methods and choose the best one that fits your needs.
You can click here to read about Differential vs Incremental backups. Either one will ultimately accomplish a backup which is what our end goal is.

General Tips
-After your initial backup I recommend you schedule backups to continuously keep your data up to date.
-Use USB storage devices like external hard drives and flash drives. They are cheap and small in size, big in storage space(GBs).
-Use backup software to simplify the backup process.

I got my PNY Attache 4g memory stick for backups and now its full. can I delete or what do i delete to make room? for newer ones? it has ready boost with 3,745,792 kb being used taking up most of the space...

If you want to use that flash drive for backing things up then I would suggest not using it for ReadyBoost. If you disable ReadyBoost on that flash drive you should have plenty of space on your flash drive for backups. Disabling it should not hurt your computer's performance at all. Here is how to disable ReadyBoost:

My SanDisck 4GB thumb drive lights up, but is not recognized on ANY of my computers anymore. Is there a way I can get all my files from the drive? Or is it broken?

You could try something like drive genius/ gparted/ etc to see if you can mount in those and check for corruption and possibly fix it.
Have you checked in computer management > disk manager or are you just saying it doesnt pop up in my computer? Double check comp management if you havent because that will show disks even if windows wont mount them (if it isnt recognized even there as well then it is probably fried).
I dont know what kind of data you had on it, but backup is something very important that a lot of people overlook until it is too late. You should ALWAYS backup any important files in at least more than one place. If you are looking for an easy way to get started....try out dropbox! It is a free app that makes it easy to automatically back up 2gb of files for free as well as sync those files to multiple computers/ iPhone/ etc. You can earn more space by referring people or purchase 50 or 100gb for a yearly fee.
