New File Back up, Hard drive imaging, and Data recovery section on Blog

Backing up your files to a different Hard Drive is important!

File Backup Imaging Recovery is a new section I added to this blog it is dedicated to teaching people how to back up their files, image their hard drives, and recover their files from a hard drive with free software. Keeping back ups of files and drives is a very important part of the computing experience, so it deserve a section to itself. Copy (CTRL+C) and Paste(CTRL+V) worked in the past, but in toady’s world it is not very useful since we have so many files on our computers, and operating systems take hours or sometimes days to customize by installing software, applying tweaks, and loading GBs worth of data onto hard disks. Plus, bookmarks, E-mail contacts, and passwords are all stored on different folders which can be difficult to back up, so in today’s technically advance computer world it is best to use hard drive imaging/cloning tools to backup your whole drive at least once a year or every six months, and run the built-in back up utility to automatically backup your files on a daily or weekly basis. Plus, there are so many distractions like work, school, TV, relationships, etc which makes people forget about manually backing up their hard drive till it is too late, so I decided to make a File Backup Imaging Recovery section to show people how easy file backup and imaging really is.  If you did not take my advice on backing up your files, and imaging your drives, you can learn about how to use free software to recover your deleted/formatted files, or accessing a computer that won’t boot with a Live-CD to access your files for copying onto a external drive or burned to CD.

I also recommend you get an External Hard drive like the Iomega Prestige 1 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive if you don’t have one since knowing how to image and back up your drive is not very useful if you don’t store the drive image, and back up files in a safe external location like a bank vault where it is less likely to get stolen by a home invader or your nemesis.

    Many experts prefers External Hard Disk. I have the 500GB with full backup.

    Same for me, I’m saving up my money for a 1-2 TB E-SATA drive which I am lusting over.
