Quick Tips on Backing Up Your Data

Since forever people thought the big M should have a better backup solution.  Well with Vista they did include a rather good built in backup tool but there is a catch.In order to of gotten this advanced backup software you would of need either the Ultimate edition or the business edition.  Most people have the basic home version or the premium version.  While there is a backup version in there it does not do full image backups and half the time it does not even seem to always run the regular file back that you set.  A great article we found was on this Vista Backup Utility site.  They provide links directly to Microsoft on how to use the free built in version as well as two other methods you will find interesting.

Most peope only think to have an onsite backup solution.  What is wrong with this you ask?   Think water, fire and theft.Fire can cause severe damage to not just a home but everything inside the home as well.  While fires are rare they do happen.  I my self had my own home burn down as a younger child.  I just bought 10 NEW Nintendo games that I saved for months to buy.  I never got to play even one of those games.  My hamsters died to.
