Backing up all the files on your computer is the best strategy you can follow if you want to protect your files. You never know when the hard drive will crash or when you will have software issues. If you do not have your backup, you might lose the important files that you cannot recover.
If you are a windows 10 user then I have good news for you. You can back up your data easily and also, you can restore them whenever you want.
Of course, you can back up your file through an external device or cloud storage. But the thing is that in both cases, you have to pay. You need to buy your cloud storage for large data and also, you need to buy any external storage to back up the data.
But creating a backup in windows 10 is relatively easier and you do not need any money at all. So do you want to know how you can create a backup and restore the data? Of course, you do and that is why you are reading this article.
Well, you are in the right place because, in this article, I am going to talk about how you can create a backup on windows 10 and restore your files whenever necessary.
All you need to do is to read the article until the end carefully and follow the instruction I am going to give. So without any further delay, let’s get started. Here we go.
How to back up files on windows 10
Before going to the main part, I will suggest you use removable storage so that you can easily create the backup and keep it in a safe place.
The first thing you need to do to create the backup is to go to the control panel, then system and security. Now, go to the Backup and Restore option. It is for windows 7. You might see other names in windows 10.
On the left, you will see Create a system image link option. Click that. Under “where you want to save your files”, you will see several options. Click the ‘on the hard disc” option. After clicking the option, you can set the location where you want to store your backup data. If you have any additional storage, click that.
Now you are near the end. Click the next button and then start the backup button. After clicking that, the windows will automatically start creating the backup. You need to wait.
One good thing in this stage I want to mention is that this process uses shadow copy technology. It means it keeps copying all the files, software, and applications even if these are running. That means you can do your job when windows are copying your file.
You are done now. If you are using an external device, you need to disconnect it now and keep it in a safe place for further use.
