Backing Up Your Photos/Files                     To Return to Courses Availability...... Click HERE

We have all heard stories of people who have had a computer fail or stolen losing all their documents/pictures/videos, sometimes years of work. With a regularly updated backup all those files can be replaced.  An up-to-date backup can also be used to transfer files from for instance Windows XP to a new computer.

Although Windows 7 / 8/8.1 and 10 come with a backup program that can be used, restoring from the backup can be a little difficult.  In this workshop we will be backing up your files using the more straightforward method of copy and paste to a USB Pen Drive or External Hard Drive, a method suitable for backing up from all operating systems including Windows XP.

We will only be backing up files that you have created such as Word documents, Excel Spreadsheets, pictures from your digital camera, email contacts and messages.  The Workshop does not cover backing up the operating system files or backing up programs which can be replaced using the original CD/DVD etc.
