Don't worry i learnt about computer backups and i can help you.
Help me ! My computer says it has a virus and i cant use it. Please help me
I dont understand. What is a backup.
First, you should store all the data from your computer on external hard drives and brands such as Segate .You should also store them in safe places.
Hmmm..I never did that but can you give me some more tips.
A backup is when you save all your files to a safe storage place in case something happened to your computer and you lost all your files you would still be able to access them.
Thanks. Any more..
You can back up your files online also through the cloud. Most cloud services give you a small amount of free storage but you can buy more. Som cloud services are : dropbox, google drive and one drive.
Wow, I never knew so much about backups.
If you want to automatically back up a lot of files or even your entire computer automatically so you don' t forget unlike through the cloud, you'll need to purchase storage from an online backup service such as carbonite or mozy.
Finally, you must never store your important files on things that will degrade, be lost or get stolen like USBs or CDs which can only hold small amounts of storage anyways. Always store them on a safe device under safe conditions.
Thank you so much now i know what to do.
You can use a bootable backup or "clone" to save the important bootup files for your computer on a hard drive so if your bootup drive stops working you can booy up from the clone until you get it repaired.
