Backing up data is a wide open subject which can be as simple as copying files to a floppy to drive imaging software.
XP includes a Backup utility in its Accessories folder, again this is usually enough for the average users needs. The key in any backup is redundancy. More then one copy in a different media (USB flash drive, CDRW, DVDRW, external hard drive) is best.
I've got a new Dell 4700 with Win XP, SP2.
I've read many posts about backing up my data and also creating a restore point.
But I have no idea of the proper procedures, steps to follow, to get either one of these things done.
Does anyone have this written down as the proper sequence of steps to folllow to accomplish both of these functions. Would you be kind enough to share this information with me.
