Helpful hints for backing up files
Step 1: Make a list of the type of files that you want to back up.
For example, if this is for your home, you may want to back up your insurance papers and pictures of your house contents separately for safekeeping.
Step 2: If you have a lot of photos, graphics, and presentations, you may want to use an external hard drive to insure you have plenty of storage space.
Step 3: Determine how often you want to back up your files. For home users, once a week or once a month may be sufficient. If you have a business, daily or more frequently may be more appropriate.
Step 4: You can choose different ways to back up your files. Three of the most common ways to do so are: (1) manually to an external drive; (2) set up a program to perform the backup; (3) or use a subscription service.
Step 5: Determine your back up routine. Think about a work or home chore you do frequently and add doing a backup to that routine so you are more likely to remember to do it. For example, when I pay bills or balance my general ledger for my business, I also back up my files.
