BACK UP YOUR COMPUTER

Several years ago, Alex had his friend Harry over, and the boys played on the computer while I wasn’t paying attention. The next day, I tried to open
a Word document but nothing was there. I tried again in Excel – same thing. ‘Oh my God!’ I said, panicking. ‘Harry deleted fi les yesterday,’ Daniel
said.

Needless to say, Harry was indefi nitely banned from our house. That little angel deleted everything (yes I checked the recycle bin). All the programs, all
the fi les, everything. Not maliciously, perhaps not even knowing what he did, but he defi nitely did not ask.

Don’t let disaster strike. Backing up is easier than ever before:

• Buy a writable DVD player or flash memory. External ones that plug in through a USB port are easy, and not more than around $100–300.
Then every week or two, back up your files, or just the most recent fi les to a DVD. Remember to store it somewhere else.

• Buy an external fl ash memory. The whole package will only cost around $300. The external drive is about the size of a PDA, and you write your backup fi les to that.

• Windows 2000 (and later) has a backup built in.

• Go to Start menu > Programs > Accessories > Systems Tools > Backup. Then the Backup wizard will walk you through it.
